They are hardy enough to live and breed in water with a SG rating higher then the ocean.

I know these fish very well.

OK I will get live rock and they a month later get the fish.

I will take out the tilapia and just keep the tank with salt.

Can I cycle the tank with freshwater flakes?

Can I feed the clowns tetra marine crisps.

Flake food is not a good thing to feed Marine Fish. I'd go with Squid, Mysis Shrimp,Cyclopese and Phyto Plankton.
Can you cycle the tank with FW flake food, I guess you could but why? Just throw in raw shrimp from the store. Also, the Live Rock will help cycle it, as it has bacteria and biolgicals that will start to grow.

Doesn't matter. A frozen one will thaw out.
