Are these slowed down to 1080p24 from 25p/50hz? Should I get the UK releases if I have the ability to play 50hz/Region B releases?

There's quite a few anime releases like this, the ones I know of for sure are Serial Experiments Lain and Black Lagoon (only the US releases from Funimation, the Japanese releases are fine).

It might not necessarily be region locked, I'm pretty sure most (all?) of Arrow's releases are region free. It's possible the extras would be in PAL, though.
