    I am not sure. You go to SLRevo and ask them for discount and freebies.
    Enjoy to take photo anywhere.

    Don't bother with additional lens yet.

    Try your new setup for a few months to find out exactly what you want/need from a new lens that your current one can't offer.

    None. Get only what you need. If you don't know whether you need it - don't buy. If you notice that you need something - read up and make a decision based on knowledge. Keep in mind: shops in general are neither charity organizations nor free education (a few guys might be an exception, though). Sales men will recommend whatever brings profit. Haven't seen any who would insist that you don't buy but rather go and read

    A flash may be more useful in this case.

    Prices can be checked in the Price Guides, have a look at the section "Marketplace".
    Why do you need advice for that? If a hobby needs paying by installment I'd think twice and check the budget, especially for consumer electronics where the market value drops faster than your installment payments. You should have the money easily available without using 'borrowed money'. Courts or HN might offer installment plans but then the camera price is not the cheapest. CC installment plan carry CC fees when paying and it only needs one month carrying forward to ruin all price advantages.
