What should you do if your shower has more water coming out of the spicket than out of the shower head?
It may be that your shower head is clogged with minerals. Try using a mineral/lime cleaner like CLR or LimeAway. You can buy these at large chain stores or hardware stores.

'In the shower' would be correct as the world 'shower' does not strictly define the shower head.
Why does your shower temperature change when someone flushes the toilet or uses another sink in your home?
Your water pressure is low. Consequently, when cold water is diverted to another application such as a toilet or a sink, the amount of cold water available at the shower mixing valve decreases as the low pressure is unable to keep up with the shower's demand. This causes a hotter mixture at the shower head. The solution is to either improve the cold water supply to the shower or to replace the shower control valve… Read More
Many people have tried to figure out exactly how and why this happens but no one has ever proven their theories conclusively. There are 4 leading theories. The first is the Buoyancy theory. Which says that as the hot air rises, and replaces the cold air, it creates a Coandă effect which is similar to a small vortex of air which sucks the curtain inwards. The second is the Bernoulli effect. This states that the… Read More

It is personal preference. Most are probably inside the tub, but for taller people or if the shower head is above the wall of the shower, it may want to be higher.
Unscrew the shower head. Remove the funnel shaped screen. You will now see a green plastic plug with a black rubber o-ring inserted in it. Use a dental pick or knife to remove the rubber o-ring. Clean and re-install the screen. This should effectively increase the flow to the shower head.

How can you change a shower head from a shower arm that has a ball on it without removing the entire arm?
The shower arm has threads on the end, as does the end of the shower head (behind the ball). The ball can be removed by gripping the knurled part that attaches to the shower arm with a pipe-wrench or a pair of "channel-lock" pliers, at which point the shower head can be replaced. Remember to apply plumber's tape or thread sealer to the shower-arm threads before re-attaching the new head.
