There are rock and metal songs from the past that sound similar too, y' know - That's not exclusive to modern music.

You're pretty much spot on, it's the exact same effect as using a whammy bar.

The difference is that he's just manipulating the bridge with his hand, rather than a whammy bar.

To be honest, the physics might not be 100% in your favour, but I would say try it. The results might not be great, but if it's something you want to try you can at least look at it as being an...

My first guess would be a normal two point Strat-style tremolo, but recessed slightly to get a little more range to pull up with, could be wrong though. :)

It will sound a tiny bit brighter and louder (Maybe the extra brightness just gives that illusion, it might not physically be louder), but it isn't a dramatic difference.

Trying a 250k in the guitar won't do any harm. Worst case scenario, you don't like it and you just have to change it back to a 500k.
