    An E-Type front derrailuer is one that clips directly onto the crankset. The other more standard type is a front der. that will attach to the bike frame itself. As far as a chainguide goes, I am not sure what that is.

    Good luck with your new bottom bracket!

    You need a 5mm spacer, you should be ble to get one from your LBS.

    A chain guide helps prevent the chain from falling off the inside of the crankset. The most common is called a "Third Eye Chainwatcher".

    An E type front derailleur is mounted on the bottom bracket shell.
