Also updating from 3.0.0 to the latest version 3.2.2 will it be fine to do so?
For feature requests, please use the project tools page on my website.

Activate the PM Command (admincp)
Set the PM command permissions (admincp)
Set the PM in tabs option in the command options part (admincp > settings)

Pretty straightforward

Not really, just removing of ioncube encoding as requested by the vb.org staff...

Hum if you ask it's meaning that you don't have the skills

Well basically you'd have to inspect what is the id of the object you want to tweak by inspecting the DOM with a tool like firebug. Then adding css code to the templates.
