Serpentine belt?
How long they last will really depend on your local driving conditions... they're so cheap why not just replace it at the factory maintenance intervals

That would be a very small load on the factory...

The biggest issue is generally a 35" tire in 20" rim size will be a higher load rating (stiffer sidewall) than the same tire in a smaller rim size...

X2.
Supercharging with insufficient gearing is a bandaid fix... it might help but it's not solving the actual problem which is the fact that larger tires effectively change your overall drive ratio

Really varies by location... locally I've seen pairs of rubicon axles go for as low as $2000... $1000 a piece is more than reasonable in my eyes.

4.10 would be a good match with 33's and leave you a...

Lower gearing will definitely help you at low speed crawling. I don't know of many that go from 4.10 to 4.56 as it's a very small change, most will jump to 4.88
