Default Some (not-so-)dumb questions

So listen you cherry pies, I'm a flashoholic, just got my Moto G a few days ago, thought I'll never have to root but am already thinking about reflashing this mother****er.

For now, as CM11 seems to be miserably unstable, I'm leaning towards going GPE on my Tesco UK Moto G.
But, I like some of the motorola services: one so in particular - the remote wipe/lock/etc. in case of phone being stolen.

So the questions are:
  1. If I flash the GPE rom to my non-gpe Moto G, will I be able to receive OTA updates?
  2. Let's say I've flashed CM11. Now I want to go back to stock firmware. If I do so, will I be able to use Motorola apps such as Assist, and more importantly, use the remote wipe/lock feature?
  3. Is it possible to re-lock bootloader, like restoring the whole device's software to its OOB state?
Thanks!

Oh and just to clarify:
can I use this: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2542219 guide to flash KOT49H (GPE) firmware on my Tesco UK Moto G?

1. If you flash gpe rom, your system files would be modified. You will further not receive any updates from Motorola moto G but will be eligible for updates from Google GPE.
2.Definitely yes, flashing a rom modifies only software not hardware so as soon as you will be back to stock moto OS, the moto apps will start supporting your device and most probably your rom.
3. You may be able to relock your boot loader but your warranty will be void. Whenever anyone unlock its boot loader it communicates with moto site to get unlock key and at very time loses its warranty.

You can try that method but maintain all precautions and do have a backup.
Be helpful and press thanks if someone helps you.
