1) IDE converters should work fine, though these days it's pretty common to use a CompactFlash card or an older style "industrial SSD module". There isn't a hard limit on the hard drive size really but after 4GB you will need to look beyond the file system offered by Workbench 3.0/1. Plenty of threads about the subject here on the forum (search for SFS, PFS3 etc).

2) The latest kickstart available as a ROM is 3.1, after that ROM updates were delivered in the form of software patches loaded during the boot process. As far as 5) goes you can burn your own updated ROMs, search the forum for "custom kickstart" or similar and you will find instructions. You don't necessarily need anything beyond 3.0/1 for most purposes though.

3) Indivisions are great and the RF shield is nothing to worry about. But if you already have a decent, working monitor solution, you don't necessarily need to get one straight away. Lots of review type stuff here on the forum and on YouTube.

6) Look into the ClassicWB packages (Workbench bundles with lots of useful software installed) and similar, if not to use one directly, at least as a guide for what you could install. At the very least get WHDLoad and purchase a key for it, if you want to play games and not use floppies.
