New ibanez guitar problem

hello everyone,
I'm a new electric guitar player and my first electric guitar i bought was an ibanez rg350wk, right now i'm having some problems with it.
First,whenever i do a dive bomb and i slowly move the bridge up again (Edge Zero II) there's an audible crack sound near the bridge.
Second, after dive bombing many times and holding the tremolo bar down for an extended period of time to glue my inlay stickers caused the action to raise alot higher (i think).
Finally, some screws on my newly bought ibanez has rusted horribly (pickguard).
I don't know how to use the allen screw to lower the action as mentioned in the manual and i am afraid ill damage my bridge and the knife edge of the bridge on the bass side is a bit over the pickguard.
I hope you guys can help me and thanks in advance!

This'll be a really good place for you to start with your setup. Guitars with floating trems are pretty tough to deal with, sometimes even for experienced players.
