Can't answer all of that but a few quick answers: You can't change from direct to chipset. It's the way the slot is wired.
My personal opinion is that you will not notice the difference running your SSD through the chipset. It will show up in synthetic benchmarks but unless you have a lot of devices sharing bandwidth on the chipset you won't ever "feel" it.
Using onboard video won't use additional lanes. The only performance concern is that the iGPU does generate heat so if you are overclocking that little bit of extra heat and power usage can cost you. Stock usage you won't notice.

The one remaining question I have is the one related to the Secondary PCIe slot if I use the top PCIe and M.2 slot for all 20 CPU lanes. What happens to the second PCIe slot in that instance? If anyone know that answer it would be appreciated.
