Hi there,

1. Yes, you will be able to install Froyo on your rooted Moto Defy

2.To fully restore the phone you will need to install the custom recovery before making changes (other than root), booting with recovery and performing a nand backup. Just select the backup/restore option.

3. Yes, rooting your phone will allow you to remove the T-Mobile apps and, I think, the start up logo as well.
