lights strings don't last as long, but bending, hammering, pull-offs will be easier to do.

If you're used to the tension of mediums I wouldn't suggest moving to a light gauge. In my oppinion, the tone of thicker strings is far superior to that of thinner, so why switch if you're used to medium? It may make it a LITTLE easier, but stay with medium.
I have nothing to put in here.

Different tone, easier fretting/bending, but the strings would be more flabby and you might/might not like it, i personally dont, they mess with my picking technique and i always got stuck in between.

Why dont you try it for yourself, see how you go from there.
