Don't worry about the chlorine either, it should of defiantly gassed out by now. If you are worried at all, just buy some chlorine test strips for pools(BTW the strips will work fine here no liquids needed). Test the pool at setup and after it has sat for a few days, IMO though it will likely read zero. If it doesn't, just hit it with some Prime and test it regularly for chlorine, eventually it should all be neutralized. Since chlorine is a pretty reactive molecule it doesn't like to hang around for long. Probably something you should know as someone who has kept a pool, you have to keep adding chlorine for it to stay at the proper levels. Which is why I feel it should be perfectly fine for fish.
No idea about the snake thing, except I love snakes ^_^
You could in theory keep tropical in it during the summer. I know around here breeders setup 50-300 gallon cattle troughs outside for raising tropicals. If it can be done in Minnesota I can surely be done south of Minnesota.
