The clue too the question is in the title.
And I have a Floyd rose so obviously I'l need to adjust it and that?

I tuned down to Drop B# at one stage, and used 11-52's with lots of tension, I'd say use 12's.

And you should need to adjust all that much. I just took off all my strings from standard, and worked from E (B) up, then just checked my truss/intonation.

Edit: and of course you'll have to adjust the spring tension, but if you're just tuning B standard, you shouldn't really need to do all that much, if I tuned down to C my bridge was level with no spring adjustment from standard.

You definitely want heavier gauge strings but no one can tell you what you are going to like. Different gauges offer different amounts of tension and different tonal properties. Go experiment until you find some that you are comfortable with.

Yes, but you will probably need it doing properly if you are tuning that low, because if you unscrew the FR too much then the springs will be fully compressed when the FR is flat to the body, meaning it can't pull back.

.59 - .10 seems to work good for B standard on a seven string. I forget what the gauge for the high B string is.

Yeah.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
