Feel free to experiment with a few different high-back angles if you want, but in the end it won't really make much of a difference. You will eventually get used to whatever you set your high-backs at and not even notice you made a change in them.
^^ exactly. Only put forward lean to max if you ride the half pipe. If you ride jibs, then you usually don't ride with any lean at all. If your just riding groomers, somewhere between half and no lean works best.
The more lean you have, the more you're calves will burn as you ride.
