You generally only want to fiddle with display controls when they're performing 
analog adjustments, as was commonly the case with CRT displays. Only a very few 
very expensive digital displays have controls that do that sort of thing these 
days, so you generally want to leave well enough alone. As might be 
counter-intuitive, this sometimes extends beyond color balance controls into 
contrast controls, and sometimes even brightness controls.

Graeme has an excellent guide to how best adjust your display in the Argyll 
documentation for the dispcal tool:


I'll let somebody else address the rest of your questions.
