- There is probably no reason to compile a custom kernel if you are moving to 9.04. It's already at the latest stable version (for now) and so unless you want some particular configuration options that you are positive the 9.04 kernel doesn't already have, it's probably a waste of time to custom compile a kernel (for now. 2.6.29 should be released very soon but I imagine many of the patches/features are probably patched into the Ubuntu 2.6.28 kernel).
- It probably won't make your laptop faster, no.
- Probably not any moreso than just using 9.04 would
- It's not hard or risky. In fact, it's a good learning experience and, you may as well give it a try just for that fact alone.

depends on how you compile it you can make it smaller but faster hard to say.
