The pink package Ernie Ball are 9-42, yes.

Why did he tell you that you need 10-46? It sounds like complete nonsense to me. You don't "need" a particular gauge of strings.

That depends entirely on the guitar.

With a Strat or Tele I see no reason to change strings one at a time. It takes much longer to do it that way, for no reason at all. The guitar or the neck will...

That 50% off the new price is definitely not true in all used markets. My experience in Sweden is that the used value of a guitar lies somewhere between 75% and 50% depending on what guitar and brand.
