I really doubt that the paint on the */c creates that much of a thermal barrier. When the paint is sprayed on in liquid form, it conforms to the cast outside of the */c. There is no air trapped or anything stopping heat transfer between the */c and the paint so the difference in heat should be negligible.
Yes, people definately throw all kinds of things in them. They wouldn't do the 60* swaps if they weren't so easy. Since the stock 2.8 is a 60* a 3.4L will bolt right in, and with a turbo it would run pretty good. I almost bought a Fiero with a 3.4 in it that dynoed 175whp, and the engine was stock except ported exhaust manifolds and different rocker arms. Now I'm thinking to myself, if it had 175whp and my STE ran 14.9'* with 182whp, then with ~800lbs. less weight and only 7 less whp it has to be running WELL into the 14'*, and with a N/A 3.4 thats pretty good IMO. I was gonna put a turbo on it. Then I came across my Lumina and those plans all changed and obviously I didn't buy it.

You would be surprised the difference it makes when trying to fight KR. It could be the difference between 3kr and 0kr. Every little bit helps when you're trying to get the most power you can out of a setup.

Someday I'll post pics of my friends Fiero. He put a Corvette engine in there(don't know what year it was, mid eighties I think).
My guess is it was probably a TPI 350. That is a fairly common swap but nowhere near as powerful as an LT1 or LS1 which are much more common swaps. Its probably a quick little bastard though.

Hard to say, I can't make out what that item is. Although you'd think you'd see a bottle in the back there, and probably some lines or something running to that box thing.
