Yes skimmer for reef, but sometimes its best to wait a bit for corals, which means you can defer some costs over a couple months. If youve never had salt before i would suggest it, as it gives you time to get used to it and make a mall mistake here and there with little to no issue.
As with carey i dont know much about lions, but the more aggressive fish go in last usually.

The lionfish can def get along with other fish, just can't be too small, or else the lion will suck him up, and don't let his size fool you, he strikes hard and fast...a ph for pwc's is not necessary, if you can afford a small one, its a convenience, but not necessary

They can, you just gotta be cautious, don't forget inverts, if you plan on having any sort of shrimpcrabs, anything like that, the lion won't work I personally think the lionfish is worth the sacrifice, but to each his own.

Check out this site, you MAY have to re-home eventually, but some others may wanna chime in, live aquaria says 50g minimum...but it seems their minimums always seem high.

The lion is a messy eater, which is one of the reasons for a larger tank. They also have a wide body so to move around rock formations and have enough rock makes it a tough balance in a smaller tank
