So once we do all this and we reinstall CWM3, which if i recall automatically converts your file system to EXT4, we will have EB13 with CWM3 and EXT4 all nice and easy, correct?

You will have a file system with EXT4, you still need a kernel that supports it. I assume that Samsung hasn't suddenly added EXT4 support.
