1) I've read that using Titanium backup works well to uninstall bloatware once you have root. Any idea if it is better or worse than moving the apps manually in Root Explorer?
I don't think it's much different. The important thing is that you have either a backup of a the apk or a nandroid restore that includes it.

Thanks
Nandroid backups are easy.

Just boot into clockwork recovery (manual mode) and go to backup and restore. Before creating a nandroid I like to clear cache of my largest apps in APPLICATIONS SETTINGS and clear my call log and text messages so I have a clean slate when I restore. I also like to wipe cache, dalvik and battery stats before performing a backup.

When restoring you should really do a wipe data/factory reset beforehand so that you get a clean restore.

Here's an article that goes into more detail than you need. http://forum.xda-developers.com/wiki/index.php?title=How_to_backup_or_recover_via_Nandr oid
