a) a tiny bit more
b) possibly
c) it would depend on the voltage already supplied by your esc, but the servos shouldn't be any slower.
d) I see no reason why not
e) just remember to remove the red wire from your ESC's receiver plug.

If you are 120g underweight, a receiver pack is a great use of ballast. Make sure it is 5-cell (6v), with 120g of weight you could actually build it out of quite large cells if you wanted to, rather than the titchy cells they use in 1/12th. The larger cells will last longer between charges and will give more current to the servos.
