I've seen some guitarists put their hand above the bridge, or somewhere around there, and press their hand down when they are bending, why do they do this? Is it effective to the technique? If you need a vid I'll try to find one.
on a trem thats not set to the body, or blocked off, it will increase tension on the strings , raising their pitch.
Yeah Dimebag is not the "Greatest Guitarist" of all time... Hendrix maybe... I must go get food to eat with my mouth

$250 for an amp? wow. is it worth it to invest that much in the amp?

You can do it easier by just pulling back on the neck while keeping the head in place. Can get some cool effects.

If you meant the technique like Marty Friedman, then its simply because of string muting. Doesnt want to accidentally touch the low strings when doing violent bends.
