the 1982 has the 368 in it as well? if so it should be a near bolt in swap.

1) no, but I would persoanlly cut the wire going from the transmission that tells the engine to kick back some cylinders, then just wire up all the selonoids to a simple on/off rocker switch and mount that on the dash somewhere, so you can choose betwen V4/V8 only and when you want, not when the 25 year old computer wants. Trust me, it'll be far better for you.

2) yes it can, but I woudln't say it would be more reliable.

3)depends, if all the factory FI stuff is working and there is no problem with it... why dump it? but a carb could go right on for you.

4) not really... is the '82 HT4100...sorry brain fart... if it is, then the swap will be a bit more involved, and I would honestly go with a carb, but defintly keep the cylinder deactiveation feature... I mean, thats just freakin cool :)

ahhh, please don't capitalize the first letter in each word :)

If the car that you are swapping the engine into did not have the same engine... then save yourself the trouble and use a carburator.
