If you already have the fridge and want to use it for fermenting, you can a) purchase a Johnson controller, b) search for Ebay aquarium controller, c) modify your fridge's thermostat to work at a higher temp, or d) program and wire up an arduino to control it
You're right, but I don't think that would come into play unless you're talking at least 80 or so degrees of temperature change, not 15.

If you're coming down from boil then definitely don't.

I think ill come down from temp. Get down to 60 and pitch my yeast. Let it sit for 24 hours at 60 until it starts going good and then throw it in the fridge at 48. Any objections?

What do you mean? You mean the airlock stopped bubbling but the beer still has bubbles?

Well airlock activity isn't a good indicator of fermentation. Best way to tell is with a hydrometer.
