This is an FAQ.

Depends on what fonts are available and what your budget is.

Times of course is a good one for saving space (esp. if one gets the 
optical variants as described in _TeX Unbound_ by Alan Hoenig).

One of the Multiple Master fonts with a width axis is another good 
choice---Minion is one of the better text faces so equipped.

I believe the other questions are covered in the FAQ or in the docs for 
the relevant packages.
