Can I switch between E with .010s and C standard with .012s without adjustment?

I like to play in C, but my band plays in E, so it'd be nice to just be able to change tunings by switching strings without fixing the term springs and intonation and everything. They should have a...

Oh, sorry, I meant a boost, overdrive, or fuzz, since I'm not really sure on the differences between those (and distortion pedals, too).

How different is a JCM800 and JCM2000 DSL?

I'm kinda having a bit of trouble deciding between the two. I like the higher gain on the 2000 better, but maybe a 800 with a OD would sound better, and I'm unsure about the cleans.

Do most amp heads/cabs have an aux in port?

If they don't could I just use a 1/4 to 1/8 plug? Would that sound fine? What if the amp only has one input? Could I combine it without messing with my guitar signal?
