plus it's really on your preference, if you like to ride duck and a bit freestyle they go with a 23 stance with your feet at 15 and -9. That's just me though and how i roll, so you might want to fool around a bit.

I think I changed my set ups about 4 times already this season till I got to what I like so far

Play around with it.  I can spend up to an hour or more just playing with my board and binding... fidgeting with not only the angles, but also the stance width.  I'm finding that a few cm can make a HUGE difference as far as comfort and performance.

If you don't know what to start out with, I believe the "standard" is +15/0.  Personally I think that feels weird, so I'd go with something like +15/+3.  But mess around with it and see what you like.
ROLL ON, BISHES.

Again, all preference.  To me, riding flat on the back foot feels weird, more so than going +3 or -3.  Although when I duck it, I swear it feels like I'm going to break my ankle when I fall (though that might have to do with the fact that I don't widen my stance).

That's going to depend... what kind of binding plates do you have?  Most plates these days come with sliders, so you can mess around with your stance either front/back or left/right.  For left/right adjustment, I'd just mess around with it on the slopes or at home until you feel like you're centered over you board.  If you feel centered anyway, then don't worry about it.

I have the Salomon Special and SPX45, so there's alot of room for adjustment...that's where the confusion comes in haha...I love that it's great to have many room to adjust but it's hard to find a default point to start hehe...
