1st - congrats! You'll enjoy the HD world.

2nd - I love the Canon XF300 and hear only good things re: the 100. Are those the only cameras you are looking at? I hear the 300 just had a big price drop. Also Sony has a new 50mb camera with 1/2 inch chips... and a new GoPro hero3 could be good to hide on stage...

3rd - I edit at home on a 2.93 quad core i7 iMac and it does fairly well as far as rendering in FCP 7. Are you still using FCP 7? Which 27inch iMac do you have? Might be worth waiting to see if you really need the whole new mac or just a lot or firewire or thunderbolt storage (you will need LOTS more storage) and some more ram.

4th - hard to say if it will increase the quality as much as you are expecting... sadly probably not LOTS better... but if it is compelling... or if it is a video of your kid, most people will not notice. All they will see is their kid and love it.

Good luck.
