This is not necessary (see below).

It is better to import the ELP file then insert ("Insert" pushbutton)
electrodes and just enter the label (no location information). EEGLAB
will detect that these electrodes have no location, and will process
them accordingly (basically it will not crash when you try plotting them

Yes (see above).
