Cabling is actually not that hard with the right tools.  Helpful tutorial videos here. Smiley

Fair isle or stranding is done in the round.  See helpful videos here. Smiley

Color work done flat is called intarsia.

You might want to look into Rovaniemi.  It's a colorwork technique that produces some interesting results.

Here is a free one from Lion Brand (need to register to access) that you could modify to look like that (just pay attention to the st counts and shaping). 

There are come free cable patterns out there that you could search through to find what you want to replace the lace with.

Yarn substitutions can be made, just know that the resulting fabric might not behave exactly the same way (good references on the differences are the Knitter's Book of Yarn and No Sheep for You. (check your library for them).

It depends on what you're planning to make.  If the extra yardage is used fore seaming, exact match is not as critical for seams that will end up hidden, for example.

Larger needles doesn't necessarily mean less yardage. 

The real way to tell how much you use is by working a swatch and calculating how much you use for x amount of fabric.  (I know there are some older posts with tips on calculating yardage use. Try a search)
20  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: yarn soacked in shampoo! on: September 15, 2008 04:50:40 PM
You should be able to squeeze out most of the shampoo by hand.  After the suds are gone, wrap it in an absorbent towel and step on the towel & yarn to get more water out.  To be safe, put it through the dryer (I don't think I'd risk air-drying because mold might form somewhere).
