Please help (Preparing for a charity run)

What do you do if I changed a 7 speed rear cassette to 8 speed and find it unusable? Is it because of the frame or what?

How do I know that my chain is worn out? Would it be ok if I don't lubricate the chain at all? Just leave it everytime I use it? Because by using oil, it gets very dirty. How to maintain it beside buying the proper lubricant which is damn expensive?

Does all hidraulic disc brakes suffer oil leakage? Can it be prevented or solved? How to maintain? What should I do if when I apply pressure on the brakes, it gives out an annoying sound? I heard before that when the wheels are taken out ( so as the disc ), you can't press the brake or it may get stuck. Is it true? Why?
