No you will not be able to watch on demand videos from the fios media receiver through your tivo, there are software restrictions and copyright restrictions to prevent that.
I have the premiere, haven't had any problems with it, it seems snappy, but software updates will always bring new features, plus you can always use the SD menus for the best option in the meantime though like I said the HD menus seem good for me.
I would recommend the premiere over the TiVo HD because it has faster hardware, a larger hard drive, and its simply better in my opinion, and I think it would be a mistake not to get it, especially for FiOS.
Your question about the cablecard can only be answered by this. It depends on the company. Comcast for example rents the first cablecard on the account for free, and a charge for every additional card, while other companies may charge like $2 to $5 a month per card. Your best bet is to Contact FiOS and ask. I know that Verizon rents theirs at $3.99 a month.
