In general, the choice of algorithm is of the highest importance. Seek
compiler optimizations only if you already have adequate algorithms.

The results of native and cross-compiling should be the same, per
definition of cross-compiling.

Yes, in general, but you must test it before and afterwards.

Depending of what you think an IDE is, either none or a gazillion.
There's nothing like what's available for commercial platforms, but
there are a lot of decent editors that can call compilers. If you're
doing windows programming with gcc, see for example Dev-cpp.

Microsoft's, definitely. If you're really after extracting
water-out-of-stone performance, Intel's are even better.
