Advice needed on best training plan and weight
Slow I would go onto the shades marathon thread and ask there you've got quite a lot of questions and they can address them in detail. Plus as you get going on the training the support and stuff will be worth it. http://www.runnersworld.co.uk/forum/training/shades-marathon-training/72631.html
For the training plans everyone has there own idea whats best like you said I would take a breath and work out which ones going to work for you best and fit's in with your life and take it from there.
There isn't a general thread yet for london but sure there will be one soon so might be worth cheaking out who else is playing for some mutual support and banter.
Just to answer point 2 - you might want to use the 4 hour time as a training target, but the MacMillan time is based on equivalent performance at each distance. For a first-time marathoner, you'll struggle to reach this equivalent performace on your first attempt. You might be one of the lucky ones who adjusts very easily to the greater distance, but the vast majority of runners don't and can take 30 mins to 1 hour longer.
