To answer your second question first, since everyone else ignored it, Bonds moves up to about the #5 hitter, as well as Helton moves up to #4 or so. Dropping beneath them are Soriano and Beltran, in my opinion. Although Vlad going to a more hitter neutral park would also drop below Helton for me.
As to the extra pitching category, the question becomes what you want to reward: starters or middle relievers and closers. If you add total bases allowed, K/9, or holds, you're increasing the value of late inning relievers. K/BB favors relievers slightly, but also improves the stud pitchers. If you've got a salaried keeper league, you probably want to go with K/BB, since that way people won't be dumping their starting pitchers for this draft, and overinflating the values of closers/middle relievers.
Adding holds, IMO, decreases the values of the top pitchers (Prior, Pedro, Schilling, etc) since they now only contribute to 67% of the pitching categories, while stud hitters like A-Rod, Pujols, Helton all contribute in 5-6 categories.
