    IMHO, any string, prestretch or not, will lose tension after a month or two. Especially if you hit with it. :)

    If it's done gently, it shouldn't affect the string's lifespan. Just make sure you don't wrap it around an abrasive surface or something like a street lamp pole.

    Do a search on pre streching the string. There are many discussion on this before already.

    Yep.

    In general, it's better, if you don't overstretch it. It'll hold tension better.
