Default Change in position from s/w engr to Senior S/w engr and other issues

Friends,

I have the following situation, any help/pointers is much appreciated:
- Have EAD (expired Sep 2010). H1B expires Dec 20, 2009.
- I was informed sometime back that I am going to be laid off mid September (next week)
- I am expecting another job offer (interview went well and most likely will get the job) and plan to start at that job late September / eraly October 2009.
- The new offer that I am expecting to get is for the position of Senior Software Engineer, whereas my previous position (where I will be laid off from) was Software Engineer.

So, my questions are:
1. Is it still possible to transfer my H1B visa even though I expect a gap of atleast 2 weeks between the two jobs, or is it better to switch over to the EAD?
2. Will it be a problem for my pending 485 application if my position changes to Senior Software Engr? (although the responsibilities in both positions are about 95% similar, few more responsibilities as a Senior Eng, thats all)
3. If I end up changing over to EAD, what next steps should I do (wrt keeping my 485 applicationb alive and to inform USCIS that I have switched over to EAD).
4. A few months before I got the notice of layoff, I got engaged to a woman in India. I would have preferred to get married by end of the year (would have applied for 1yr extension of H1b) so that my wife could have come over on H4 visa. Now, if I switch over to EAD, what are the options of bringing my (to be) wife over? Is this going to be a problem?
