Starting a new Crystal Hack, I have some questions

Hey there, I am wanting to start a new Crystal hack using the disassembly. I just want to change all the Pokes from originals to mostly fakemon. I want to make at least one Pokemon for each dual type, excluding the addition of Fairy type. So, one for Normal/Dragon, Fire/Grass, etc. But don't want to repeat, like Dragon/Normal, Grass/Fire, etc.

Anyway, I want to rename, stat/type/moveset/learnset,etc change, but I noticed there are a lot of instances of vanilla crystal pokemon names. Is there like a bulk rename tool, so I can rename say Chikorita to Viraleon in one go and not all places in the source code? I realize Cygwin will tell me if I miss an instance when attempting to compile, but I'd like to know what I'm up against when starting this hack.

Regarding evolutions, does Gen 2 limit the amount of possible evos? Like, Can it look like:

Eevee > Vaporeon > Misteon > Ultimeon?

OR

Eevee > Vaporeon
Eevee > Misteon
Eevee > Rogueon
Eevee > Leafeon
Eevee > Flareon, etc.

Is there a limit in how many I can add, like in Gen 3?

Regarding Sprites... Is there an easy way to modify Crystals pokemon images? I saw there are a bunch of images in the disassembly. What tool would be used to recolorize or import other images to be used towards compiling?

Regarding ram... If I add moves to the level up learnset, I assume that will need to be repointed to a new address? What about TM/HM compatibility?

As I get further along, I will add more questions, but this is the gist of what I'd like to know. Thanks!

Yes you give Eeve 3 Evolutions.
Yes the Limit is of total 254 Pokemon.
Microsoft Paint and Gimp where good to modify Sprites but you can max 2 colors and Black and White.
The Pointers are in a asm file as possible moves_pointers.asm, there you must wrote the new changes.

Best greetings

Thanks, I thought the limit in Red was 3 and the limit in crystal was 5? In crystal, Eevee can evolve into five possible types due to two additional eeveelutions.

And thanks for the info on the sprite editor.
