I run a mini mash like this for most of my beers. The best I ever did was 75% efficiency. 50-65 is far more common.

For me, the white labs irish ale yeast is a must for stouts. It makes for a very clean tasting stout.

I don't use wheat in my stout. I use .5 lb flaked barley. I use target or NB for bittering and shoot for about 40IBUs. Its a pretty good representation of a dry irish stout.

Use german pils and maybe some wheat with noble hops.

I just sampled a bit of an APA I got going into secondary. I used warrior, perle and cascade.

I'm very impressed with the perle flavor. I might have to try the perle saaz combo.

don't bother repitching. The yeast will finish up. Stuck fermentation just doesn't happen that often from my experience unless its a high gravity brew. Patience. :D

depends on how much sugar you added. Just because they carbed in 5 days doesn't mean they will explode. Also, as long as you had a stable FG for a few days and didn't overdo it with the priming...
