Questions: S420, DiMarzio/electronics upgrades

Hey guys, this is my first post so hopefully I'm doing this right haha

I recently purchased an S420 with the stock INF's. I play in a progressive melodic metal band (The Discovery, check out our FB ) so I decided to go with white w/ black pole Evolution bridge and Liquifire neck. I figured that while I'm getting that done, I may as well upgrade some of the lesser-thought-of components. This is where I go off the rails. My questions are:

Pots: 500k? What brand? Do they fit? Do I need new knobs?

Cap(s): I ordered a 0.022uF @ 200V 5% Orange Drop for the tone pot. Is that right/good? Do I need more than one? Volume pot?

Pickup Selector: I'd like to put in a new white-tipped 3-way PUP-selector rather than the five-way. Brand? Fit? Can I switch from 5 to 3?

Output: I ordered the Prestige (3JK1J23) jack for $20... Maybe a waste of money but oh well. Any justification for me?!

If you took the time to read through all of that, thank you. I really do appreciate any help, as there are 10,001 different pages explaining things in terms that are way over my head. Also, if you have any comments on the pickups I've chosen or disagree with the set, please let me know. Welcoming any and all feedback. Thanks!!!
