pros: it will remove carbon buildup
cons: it will also cause you to burn more oil, as seals will sit loose afterwards.

Not worth it in my opinion, just change your oil regularly.

depends on how much your car has run, should do it once around 20k and then at 40k, that should suffice. It improves the running to a great extent and the engine becomes smoother.
