Nope, follow the recipe just like you should and you'll be fine.

Yep, use the calculators available online to figure how much corn sugar to add. Just google "Beer Carbonation calculator"

I'd suggest using dried malt extract (plain) to bottle with. The bubbles are a little finer, which I think makes the beer feel more like a hand pulled pint.

Edit: you can't substitute DME for sugar 1:1. I generally use about a cup and an eighth of DME for stouts.
