It's the same as in the starter kit -- ten command lines.

No problems. Cut, copy, duplicate to your heart's content. As long as you're not setting the script of something or issuing a do command, you're fine. (There's also a limit on the number of items you can insert in front or back -- 50? Not sure off the top of my head.

No problems.

Then you're subject to the starter kit limits, but only on the scripts you want to modify.
