Very few fish need water lower than 78 degrees. There are some cold water fish though (Catalina gobies come to mind) and they likely would need a chiller.
So if it got to 95 would that kill most salt water aquarium fish?

I think over 82 is where things go bad for most.

As for the food, you should have made them feed it in front of you before buying it. They do tend to tell stories here and there. That said, go to the LFS and pick up some live black worms or blood worms if he's not eating. Mine ate only those for a couple weeks, but never went to flake. I've had him a year and he still turns his nose up to flake and pellets. I feed him frozen chopped fish and shrimp mostly, along with nori on a clip of course.
Mr X should i use Carbon in the Filtre.

Carbon is good to use. I can't see a reason not to, if you care to go through the trouble.
