Also, if I run direct-mount CO2/HPA should I get an on/off for the tank/gun?

If you are not running with a stock then you really should have the tank on the marker so you have a way to stabilize it.
An on/off ASA is nice to have, but you really don't need it. The only reason I would recommend one is if your marker is prone to have minor leaks. That way you can shut off the airflow while you are not playing.

A true adjustable reg has two gauges. One tells you how much air is in the tank, the other tells you the output pressure of the tank. They also require an allen wrench to adjust and can go as high as 900 or 1,000 PSI. They are perfect for Automag users.
Since you are using CO2 with a stabilizer you really do not need to go to HPA, unless you plan on playing in the cold. If you only play during the warmer months you should be fine with CO2 though. Same is true if you do a lot of outlaw play rather than going to a commercial field.
Keep in mind you need a bigger HPA tank to get the same amount of shots as a CO2 tank. You can get about a half case off of a 20 oz. If you want the same shot capacity from a HPA tank you need either a 114 cubic inch 3,000 PSI tank or a 92 cubic inch 4500 PSI tank.
