Absolutely. There is no point boiling beer, use water. Also I'd go with only half a quart to avoid impacting FG of the beer. But I hope you realize that result will be a bit different. The hop aroma...

I did it a few times. Same procedure. Since lagers don't have this dominant easter profile it's very easy to overdo with it. Use your hops sparingly at least for the first time.

I don't think you can do this recipe with extract only. But for PM book suggests using 5.25 lb of Mutons Extra Light DME plus 3.5 lb Light LME instead of Pilsner base malt.

Lager yeast can ferment certain types of sugars which are not fermentable by ale yeast. This will result in higher carbonation levels.

I don't think it's necessary. I think you need to add some dark crystal malt. Also how did you come to the idea of wheat and oats? I think those fits more for a stout, but not the baltic porter.
