Don't mess with the internal storage, it isn't an sd card and you'll hard brick the phone.

Put everything on your external sd, leave the internal as empty as possible -this will reduce wear on the nand memory.

When changing roms you still would have to reinstall all games, nevermind if on internal or external sd. Just use Titanium Backup to make it easy and as said don't touch internal memory!

I don't think so as the base app or at least some parts is still installed in internal memory whereas e. G. Save games you could copy to external and copy back later if you can find the files.

Nope. The apk will be on the internal sd, u can only put the DATA not apk in the ext sd.
