However if it's the only elevated speaker you...

1. The receiver has 9 amps built in but 11 discrete processing channels. So you'd need at least 2 channels of external amplification to do 7.1.4.

That question is somewhat incomprehensible, but the bottom line is you typically just let your receiver's auto calibration do its job. You will probably want a high crossover for the Atmos module...

Yes, the "basics" commands like power on/off, volume up/down etc. are not going to be any different. So the newer remote control should still work. A lot of the input commands will probably work...
