i would leave the hu options flat, or through or off.. whichever options you are given.. use the amplifiers to get the sound that most pleases your ears

do the big 3 and see how much you dim, then choose an alt from there if you need it. do not buy a big 3 kit, just make one

Yes 0/1 for all and make sure it's copper wire. That should be loads of wire.

believe you want to use rosin free solder.. that's what is recommended for electrical circuit boards.. dont see why any old lead wouldnt work, as long as electrical current can run through it..
