Well on most guitars you can just take the whammy bar off and on, so don't worry about that.

And as far as i know, Schecters(i think thats how to spell it) are pretty versatile.

Try a few more out, and whatever you like best and feels best, you should pick

Meh I'd go with a strat If i were you. And whammy bar is all preference. I love it. Couldn't play without it. Well, thats an exaggeration, but it adds another dimension, like a new effect. And as far as I know all strats have tremolos (bridges that use whammy bars, in case u didnt gather that).

It's spelled Schecter, just so you know. I don't think you can go wrong with them, at the very least the are competitive, in my opinion they're better for the price than most. As for a tremelo, or whammy bar, only get one if you think you will be using it. If you don't plan on using one, they make it harder to tune and maintain tuning, so if you don't want to deal with that, don't bother with a tremelo. On the other hand, they allow you to do things you simply cannot do with a hard tail.

Fixed. Other than that, this is fairly well correct. If you're just starting out with trem bars, I'd recommend a Strat-style one as opposed to Floyd Rose.
