You should be able to use the stock radio remote wire , unless you just want to add a switch . It's completely up to you in which route you want to take .

Use a fuse such as the gauges fuse, and tap into that. It can be any fuse that is in use while the car is running. So grab your manual and look up a fuse that will work. And I believe the one from the radio doesn't provide enough amps.

Yea stick one end of the wire tapped into the fuse and the other end goes to amp. And if gauges doesn't work then guess around.

Just run the remote wire to the headunit. Remote wire does not need to transfer power. It is just to turn the amp on and off. Run it from the amp into the headunit.
