1. No you can't, Xsan doesn't use hfs+ but uses its own filesystem acfs, it will erase all data...
2. I don't know about the break even point, but do know that is has nothing to do with losing storage. It will benefit from the dedicated controller, you can setup a very small raid1 mirror from 2* 10 Gb disk2
3. I have done a lot of testing regarding stripe breadth and blocksize allocation strategies, it all depends on what kind of files you store on the Xsan. There are a lot of peaces in this puzzle to get it right. Start with settings recommended by Apple and do a lot of testing...
