"what do i need to know about the spacing?"
you'll need to know your bb shell spacing to get the right bb. you'll also need to know the bcd of the cranks if you get the chainring separately. if you get the phil bb, you won't really have to worry about spindle length, seeing as how it's adjustable.

that's up to what you can afford. a track crankset would be best and easiest, but you can easily get a bmx or road crankset to work as well.

Even with an adjustable chainline BB like the Phil, you DO have to worry about the correct spindle length. You can only adjust them by about 4-5mm.
