h is hspa, its high speed 3g. dont mistake it for tmobiles hspa+(which is even faster 3g, tmo calls it 4g). its normal, thats what you should be seeing if you have hspa in your area.

Welcome to the Nexus S community! You'll love the phone, believe me

As for the "H" it actually stands for HSDPA (which is better than 3G in the term of speed). So basicly its a good thing when your phone shows "H" all the time

Wi-Fi is more dependent on the radio I believe. I haven't really toyed with CPU speeds on my phone as it's pretty snappy with the stock settings. There are numerous kernels available to use. Download a few and have at it.
