1)a new memory card would be good but what kind (I've read it handles 3 different types)? What are the differences between them. Knowing that I won't use the video that much but I'd like to enjoy the 9fps from time to time.

If all you need are 9 frames, the camera will buffer those in its internal memory, so even a cheap card with no rating would work.

The difference is in how soon the camera will become operational again after taking these 9 frames. With a Class 6 card you can be waiting for a good half a minute before you can take the next shot. Sometimes it's ok, sometimes it means a missed opportunity.
