I'm pretty sure it would snap a string, seeing as how baritones are usually tuned a fifth down, and have thick strings to compensate for the low tuning/longer-scale neck.

It is possible, I'm not sure how good it actually will be for the neck and the strings though. Unless you absolutely only have one guitar and it is a baritone and you need to play in standard tuning, I probably wouldn't bother. Besides, you could always capo the guitar so that it is in standard tuning.

Dir En Grey has custom ESP guitars, so just because they can do something abnormal doesn't necessarily mean that it is a good idea. I'm not too familiar with their gear, but it could very well be possible that his guitar is specifically designed for that.

You can depending on your string gauge. IMO, i'd use 8s on a 30" baritone, 9s on a 27" and 10s on a 25.5 for the same amount of tension in standard tuning

I doubt it my cousin has one and tunes it standard Idk what his string gauge is though but the strings are light.
