salmon No problem. shameless plug, but my 75P journal in my sig below has some examples of using different plants in a DSM. There are a few other good examples in the journals on here as well.

1- Dont think there is one particular "THE how to" out there, best to search for similar examples for what your planning to do

2- For the most part for many that do it, yes, i'd say so. But not limited to just carpet plants

3- There are lots...lots of aquatic plants can handle it quite well. There are a few that wont, like blyxa, vals etc.

4- I would recommend Aquasoil personally, but any nutrient rich substrate should in theory work the same
