Instead of a ceramic? Not much.

If you want to use a bearing from a local bearing shop be sure you get a bearing with a plastic cage holding the balls, with a metal cage the lifespan is short and there is a chance of a stuck bearing.

If you are using a bearing from another engine it is no problen (if it is the same size).

And no, the plastic cage will not melt (probably it teflon)

One question, is it necessary to remove the backside of the plastic cage when installing the front bearing? (leave it open so we can see the inside bearing ball)

Do NOT remove the cage.

Some bearings have rubber seals on both sides. Most people take the inside seal out but you can leave it in if you want.
