1. The shorts thing depends on how long your ride is and how long you're accustomed to riding. I would suggest that you wear cycling shorts for any 'longer' ride because the chamois is not only padding it is wicks away sweat. Chafing in your nether regions is not fun.

2. That saddle does have a small cutout, I see. I would focus on getting a narrower saddle, ideally 135mm, medium padding and a relatively large center cutout. That Selle San Marco seat you linked earlier might work well.
