Is it true that there is only a difference of 3 decibels in a 50watt amp compared to a 100watt? and only 3 more in a 200watt. (talking tube amps here)

Think of wattage as headroom, not volume level. I don't know or care about your decibel levels.
#3
yes. 3db in anything is double the volume.

EDIT: saying that, wattage is a total different matter in terms of decibels.

watts double in when you multiplty it by 10. i.e 500 watts will be double 50 watts, and 200 watts will be double 20 watts
