Here is a chart comparing a few of the stock, M030, and 996 GT-3 front and rear sway bars. Yes, the M030 and 996 GT-3 sway bars greatly differ. As the chart shows, the GT-3 front sway is 1.51 (or 51%) to 2.06 (100%) times as stiff as the Base M030 front sway bar (depending on which hole is used).

No, not easily. The most common rear sway bar upgrades are the M030 or the Tarrett adjustable 986 sway bar.

Yes and no. Yes, a more track oriented tire will provide much greater grip. But a higher performance tire won't significantly affect the chassis roll.
