Your questions don't belong in this list because they don't have
anything to do with FreeBSD but here goes...

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.
