Lowering the inner link will allow the car to rotate more. This will also give more camber gain so you don't need to run as much static camber.

The way I look at is:

More camber gain (more angled link) gives the car a controlled slide.
Less camber gain (less angled link) gives less slide, but will break traction more suddenly.

I try and run the least amount of camber gain without the sudden loss of traction

Less grip; the car rotates more due to less grip.

Post your setup. Also, check to make sure that none of the suspension components are cracked anywhere as that can cause some abnormal handling.

No if you get the oneway all you'll have to do is probably change some things on your setup, but oneways are usually faster. The tradeoff is theyre just harder to drive most the time.

If it was that bad there's probably something wrong with it. Such as worn out tires, binding/broken suspension, bent hinge pins, ect... But if its loose and pushing I'm going to take a stab at the tires being worn out or the wrong compound.

Using the hole nearest to the center of the car on the shock towers will give more grip and vice versa. I would leave them at kit settings though and move the camber link up or down, up giving more grip and down less.

1. There is a narrow rear belt for the mi2 - but only suitable if you are running stock/540. You can run the R12 front belt if you want something a little free-er for the front.
2. If bearings are clean, check and make sure diffs are all shimmed correctly - so not rubbing on diff housings etc. Get belts right, get belt tensioner settings right (basically no tension on either front or rear in stock class)
3. There is no "right" answer. Some tracks are faster with foam, others with rubber. Some clubs allow foam, others only allow rubber. At Beaudesert rubber is faster. At logan probably foam. At bayside rubber, at hobbystation, probably foam. Some race series in SEQ have rules about what tyres you can use.
4. not sure, someone else can answer
5. by far the best thing for you to do is to practice. changing all this stuff on your car will not make the slightest difference if your driving is inconsistent. spend all your $$ on getting to the track to practice, practice, practice. Practice on any track you can get too. Don't change too many things and don't listen to too many people. Put a fairly standard setup on your car and drive, drive, drive, drive. That's what you need to do more than anything.

Cheers
