1. RUU = ROM Update Utility. When you boot the phone into bootloader, if it says *** UNLOCKED *** or *** LOCKED (OOW) *** at the top, then it's unnecessary to update anything.
3. Uninstalling apps will not speed up the phone, though it will free up memory. You can uninstall bloat and unused system apps like facebook, twitter, plurk etc. DO NOT uninstall anything related to the system or Sense. DO backup your ROM before making changes per step 5 of the guide above. DO install Titanium Backup from Google Play and backup/uninstall apps with it so you can restore them if things get funky.
4. All user apps can be moved but system apps can't unless you use Link2SD.
