So, if I load the mathalpha package after MinionPro and attempt to select a fraktur font with it, I get the error message "Command \mathfrak' already defined." It would be nice to use the scaling capacity of mathalpha.

(1) I'm not seeing this problem. The file

\documentclass[11pt]{amsart}
%SetFonts
\renewcommand{\ttdefault}{lmtt}
\usepackage{MinionPro}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{textcomp}
\usepackage[frak=boondox]{mathalfa}
%SetFonts
\begin{document}
$y=\mathfrak{F}$
\end{document}

runs for me without errors, and uses boondox as fraktur. More input needed.

(2) ?
