You don't need to feed corals.

Will the greater amount of light affect growth rates?

A friend of mine told me not to worry about feeding them bc there like plants, they like lots of light. True or false bc I've also heard there things u can directly feed them to speed up there growth?

Feeding will help, they'll grow/propagate faster and have better colors. Only thing about zoas is they don't always show that they are feeding, sometimes they will, but not always.

Its not necessary, but it does help.

I got frozen brine shrimp for my other tank. Could I chop it up real good and directly feed them that?

I've heard of people doing that, i've also heard of people using the cloudy water you get when you thaw them. If you're looking to buy food, I'd recommend Coral Frenzy. It goes a long way and my corals react really well to it.

Dont forget feeding corals adds to the bioload and nitrates will accumulate faster, along with phosphates. Overfeeding applies to the tank not just the fish.
