That would be great but the lowest prices I'm finding are $70 used. Where are you looking to find such good deals?

The HT-1 is too expensive for a temporary thing. The army doesn't pay terribly well and I can only play on the odd free weekend.

Cheap Temporary Practise Amp (metal)

I'm away from home until January and looking for a cheap practise amp (like 1w tube or something) that I can either throw away/sell later or is small enough to cheaply transport by plane.

In Guitar Pro, you can alter the tempo or use the "loop" function and set the values to e.g. 80% to 80% and increase it slowly e.g. to 82% to 82%.

You're already on the right track. Keep learning solos that you want to play at the speed at which you're capable of playing them well. Then, slowly, (using a metronome) build up those speeds. You've...

Get better at alternate picking and you can achieve that really "chuggy" sound without down picking.

Slow down and focus on not brushing your finger against the string. As Zaphod said, there's not much we can say here without seeing exactly what you're doing.

It's not wrong but it's still worth learning to play to a metronome. Guitar pro can remove the need to subdivide the beat, which is an important skill to learn.
To use a metronome: set the metronome...

Remember, all the people whom you consider to be great were once worse than you. The only thing standing between where you are and where they are is practise.

Pick choice is about preference and desired sound. I like to have small picks because I find it easier to choke up on them.

I can't play at all when I'm drunk, it sounds awful and I know it. Why would you want to play drunk anyway? Personally, I see it as disrespectful of the audience to do it when playing live.

I would suggest just shifting to classical position if that solves the problem. Other than that, it's just a case of slowing down and focusing on staying relaxed.

This. Also, you need to change that A major scale into an A minor (since you're going to the A minor pentatonic) by lowering the 3rd, 6th and 7th notes a half step, giving you: A, B, C, D, E, F, G, A.
