Hard to really answer this definitively, but because of the nature of the type of audio that the height channels provide, I would say yes, they will likely make a noticeable positive improvement.

It's hard to say for sure, but generally speaking, the pre-pros that support Atmos are at least $2K and go up from there. Because only the more dedicated home theater enthusiasts go with pre-pros (and they tend to spend more money), I doubt we'll see many lower cost options anytime soon. The market is small, so vendors can charge more.

Hearing Aids and New A/V Technology?

Would a person who wears hearing aids be at any disadvantage with this new technology and if so, what would be the specifics?

if anything? It will sound much better. it seems more balanced with both the center speaker and the surround action noise of explosions.
that is my impression of it.
