yes, must be very cold first & chill the keg.

What I do is buy soda concentrates & keep a keg of carbonated water on tap.

Paging BigKahuna!

I know the BK keeps a corny full of soda transplanted from 2l bottles. Give him a shout -- I bet he can give some tips.

I buy my concentrates from sodaclub.com, but stores that cater to restaurants will almost always have them.

No, just fill from the tap.

You can also make your own syrups and add them to carbonated water. Look up some ginger ale syrup recipes. They're easy to make, albeit a bit messy, and I guarantee you you'll enjoy it more than store bought stuff.
