Setting up a new tank/newbie questions

When I got my 10 gallon tank I just bought the "startup kit". I'm looking at the 55s now and was wondering about a couple things......

Power filter or under gravel filter?

Fluorescent or incandescent? With my 10 gallon tank it came with an incandescent hood and it heated the water up to much and had to buy a fluorescent hood.

Cycling? When I started the 10 gallon tank I started with 5 zebra danios, should I start with more with a 55g tank and then put my existing fish in? What is the best way to move the fish from one tank to the other?
