Definitely Pro Tools. Its much more the industry standard and if your market is to do home recordings of bands, it will be much easier for those that wish to have their projects mixed by a 3rd party. (Better chance that the person mixing will have a pro tools system than having fruity loops).

No, you need to get it most likely at an online retailer or something like Guitar Center/Sam Ash etc. You won't be able to find it in most stores. Remember you need an interface to run Pro Tools as well.

Several ways; Cut that single part of the track out and put it on a new track and with the plug in.Automate the bypass on the plug in to only switch on during that part.Make an aux send to the plug in and automate the send to only switch on when that part needs to be on and off the rest of the time.

No. Pro tools is owned by digidesign which has no direct affiliation with Antares, the parent company of Auto-Tune. It must be bought separately and installed as a plug-in within pro tools.

Well, Pro Tools cant be touched by Mixcraft. Sur, Mixcraft has diffrent plug-ins, but NOT AS GOOD as pro tools so no matter what you do with compression, D-erb, Delay, Gates, etc..You cant match Pro Tools. Pro Tools also has a much more morn fel and look to it.

Yes. Even PTF files created using an HD system can be used in M-Powered but you are limited to the number of voices with an M-Powered system so sometimes it is best to create stem tracks before doing this.

You need a firewire connection, most likely at least 2 gig ram and a decent processor.

Depends on what you are wanting to do, unless its a huge tour, you'll be using LE, make sure you have plenty of processing power and only use your laptop [hopefully the case] for that purpose.

If you could create a new question with the specific interface it would be more helpful.

Lambda audio/midi interface was made for Cubase LE and is not compatible with Pro Tools. Now with Pro Tools 9 saying it supports any previous interface, I'm not sure. I have not updated from 8 to 9 yet. So if you plan on using pro tools 8 or earlier than no it is not.
