Don't know if I can answer properly to all of your questions, but some other guys will surely help us out. Just to outline some basic facts:
I believe you can ABSOLUTELY do it on the side. Totally go for it. You will have time in the future to decide whether you prefer to go for it full time or not, but you can certainly make it either way. Of course, as long as dedicating most of your free time to arbing is OK with you...
I would go for free services to start with. Betbrain, Oddsportal, and there's some other decent ones. After you've gained some experience (in 1-2-3 months?) you can pay for services.
You will have to join as many as books possible. You will get limitations and need to set up new accounts constantly. That's life! 3 bookies is far too few but it's OK if you want to start real slow, which isn't a bad idea if you are absolutely new to betting and don't know, for example, how to search in bookies' webs. If you already know the basics, such as types of bets and their meaning, etc, you can start with some more bookies or you'll soon be bored.
Australia is I think a great place for arbing. You have little restrictions as far as bookies access is concerned. But aussies here in the forum will know better than I do. You guys apparently also have some pretty interesting shops.
I wouldn't know how to avoid e-wallets fees... but I'd sure love to hear about it!
