RHS PRO TORKER 12402 HEADS & QuadraJet Questions

Im about to place an order for these heads & valve train items but am uncertain on a couple of things & was wondering if anyone is using these or can help as I need to factor in any possible machine shop work & hidden surprises.

1: does anyone know if these heads are pre machined "out of the box" ready to accept guide plates for roller tip rockers? or are they ment to be used with stock valve train components?

2:are they pre tapped for screw in studs?

3: the heads come with valve seats pre cut, but do I have to pay for valves to be cut to match , or can I just lap valves in & run?

4: on a totally different tangent, Ive got an old carter quadrajet which came with the motor which i planned on giving a go, but can someone tell me how to plum in the hot air choke on a quadrajet when using a edelbrock performer inlet manifold?
Ive never used one of these carbs & if its going to be aggro ide rather pick up a second hand Holley as parts availability hear in uk for quadrajets is all but non existent.
