Get regular pieces then add the good pieces at the end of your cycle.

It will but should clear up in a day. The die off won't be that huge and the bacteria should take care of it.

I really don't like how it smells but if you can stand it then go ahead. I would add a lot of the live rock now and then pick a few cool pieces when its done cycling.

No, you will be fine. Your top off with non-saltwater is allowed because of that.

You'll have to wash it off like once a week. Especially on the lights.
