Fretting is not what usually wears out strings. Usually it's oxidation, or moisture and gunk from your fingers. So no, I wouldn't expect them to wear out strings faster. Plus, SS wire is very smooth...

6105 is probably what you have on your squier and fender. It's the standard fret size for a lot of guitars, probably the most common size there is. 6150 is a big jumbo, gives you a bit more grip...

I think you've misinterpreted what active/passive means as far as volume pedals go. Often that designation just refers to whether the volume pedal's impedance is matched for active or passive...

Really, it's so bad that you can't even notice the frets? I have a hard time believing that. I'm sure it's not ideal playing on the wider nut but I feel like you should be able to at least get an...

If one size were better than the rest we would just use that. They make a bunch of sizes so you can pick one that works for you.

Generally for a lighter touch I'd suggest a big fat fret - jumbo or...

+1. Move one wire and you get a tone control on the bridge. Do that and mess with the height of the pickup before you go spending money on new stuff.

You'd have to replace the bridge. A neck adjustment isn't going to do anything if it's straight already.

Yes. They're awful. DR generally makes great strings but their color coated ones are just terrible. Stiff feel, shrill sound, the color flakes off quickly. I don't know how long they last because I...

^Not if they're old and worn out they don't.

Try it for yourself, but I just don't think it's significant/audible. Like you say, there's very little current. The pot and cap are still in the circuit, and taking them out completely (no-load...

The 1000 is a much better guitar, and the stock pickups are excellent. You can usually get them for less than 900 new, too, at least in the US. Used they're even cheaper.

Are we talking Deluxe Reverb or Frontman 25? Fender makes a lot of single-channel amps.

Zvex Box of Rock would be my first suggestion, but again it depends a lot on what the amp is.
