Sending my queries in this thread too.. also adding up some more!!

We have planned to visit Gangtok and surroundings with family members. This is the first time I'll be there in Gangtok(though visited part of North Sikkim and Dzongu last year). So your valuable suggestions are very much needed.
1. The rough plan:
October 11th night - catching Padatik Express.
October 12th - reaching NJP around 9:30 AM. Head towards Gangtok. After launch, going to Rumtek, Rangka and Tintale.
October 13th - Going to Changu lake, Baba mandir, Nathula pass.
October 14th - Some other site seeing near Gangtok. Afterwords, heading towards some other place(still to be finalized - Chota Mangoa/bara mangoa/Delo). Nightstaying there.
October 15th - Enjoy the morning time, then journey towards NJP to catch Padatik express.
2. We're still to get confirmation whether any room available in Delo. Otherwise, we'll stay at baramangoa/chota mangoa. We've called Mr Pradhan and he said rooms are available. Any idea about the staying options. Which will be better among Chota mangoa and bara mangoa to stay(considering facilities).
3. We have elderly in our group(75, 60 and 51). So, how suggested is to go to Changu, Babamandir and Nathula route.
4. We have called Mr Deepak Rai to do the Changu trip etc. He said he has a hotel in Gangtok near stadium. Do you have any idea about his hotel? he said the room rent can be made Rs. 800, is this worth? Is the famous M G Marg in walking distance from this hotel?
5. Can you please suggest the must see sites to go on Oct 14th as per our plan. We just don't want to make it hectic, as going with elderly family members.
6. What kind of transportation is available in Gangtok? Can you hire a meter taxi or something like that? Is it advisable to take such taxi for the nearby sightseeing considering cost. Can we 5 people travel by a single taxi?

Thanks in advance!!
