It will take A LOT of brine to equal a whole shrimp but you could do that. If you're using the cubes, you'll probably need about 3-4 cubes.

Use your net (assuming you have one). Put the shrimp in, fold it in there and leave it. Makes it easy to remove later

Nope, leave it in and let it rot. It's probably gonna smell bad, but it's good for the tank. The ammonia-eating bacteria will build and will use up all of that ammonia at some point, but it's gonna take a little while. If you take out the ammonia source, then the ammonia-eating bacteria will die off while you're waiting for the nitrite-eating bacteria to grow, the nitrite-eating bacteria take a little longer to grow. I've read that turning the temp up into mid 80's during cycle helps the bacteria to grow faster cuz bacteria thrive in warm places. But remember let temp go back down before adding fish.
