How do you know when the carbuerator needs to be replaced in a 1989 Chevy Caprice with a 350 engine?

You should never need to replace a carb. Cleaned yes, rebuilt yes, but not replaced. If the car is being driven then at most you need to have it adjusted and tuned up. The only time you will ever need to replace a carb is when it is so gummed up from sitting that it can't be cleaned properly.

Will a 1994 5.7 lt1 caprice fit in a 1991 caprice?

Yes a lt1 will fit in a 1991, but i believe the motor mounts are a little different for the lt1. You cannot transplant it though without an PCM from an lt1, which needs a 4l60E transmission to control the transmission and engine codes. There are standalone kits available but they cost more than a PCM.
