Quill stem questions

So my Tommasini had a frozen quill stem when I bought it. I had to cut it of to be able to tap it out. I'm looking for a new one. I have a 25.4 bar with a 1"stearer. Here are my three questions

Can I get a 26 and think that if I take out the shim it will clamp down tight enough?
Is there some shim material to build up the bar?
Some say if you have a smooth bar you need a smooth surface inside the bar clamp area and if you have a groved bar the inside of clamp you need to match that with groved.

Please advise
