Unable to move applies best to large, dead and unattached, tree trunks. There's no way you can move it without a whole team of people, so it is treated in the same way as a live tree would be.

He must take the first lie possible on that line. But as long as it's within 5 meters, there's no penalty.

You get a meter off the OB line, that would have to be a pretty large tree to still not be able to get a stance.

Dead and unable to move plays the same as a live tree.

I throw the Truth and Warship a lot. I put them on the same speed level as the Meteor.

I used to throw the Core quite a bit, I consider it slower than the above three.

30 discs is really going to be pushing the limits of the Discarrier. So I'd say scratch that option. I don't have any experience with the Prodiscus or Helix.

This is my general philosophy as well. The field is for practice and skill development while the course is for putting those skills to the test.
