    1) This guide is great: https://gbatemp.net/threads/wip-complete-custom-firmware-guide.396349/ . As you have an O3DS, choose RXTools, it's in my opinion the best CFW for it.
    2) Your games will always be installed on your SD card, whether you buy them from the E-Shop or install them as CIAs. Actually, I don't see where else they could be installed...
    3) Except if you want the entire E-Shop on your SD card, your 32GB card is perfect. You can have plenty of games, and you can always replace the old games by new ones (if your SD is full, that is!).
    4) Actually, I don't know if the 3DS can use the high transfer speed of SD cards. Anyway, a class 10 will be enough, and you will be able to copy files from your PC to your card at a decent speed. Most 32GB cards are UHS1 from what I've seen, so that shouldn't be a problem anyway.

    Did you put the firmware.bin and the slot0x25keyX.bin at the root of your SD card?
    If you are sure you did that, reset your web browser (settings -> erase all web browser data (or something like that)), and it should work :)
