Rod, it sounds like you're planning an aggressive project. Your questions are pretty in depth. First of all I would suggest you pose them to the manufacturer of your roofing. What are you trying to achieve? Energy efficiency? Durability? You could use SIPS panels if your home can handle the weight but you need to get some ventilation worked in the system. Call me if you would like to discuss 1-800-543-8938 ext 201
