I assume you do mean a paperback. Yes, you can move it.

The Look Inside is usually at least 10%. Contact Customer Service below at 'Contact Us'.

Sure. Alas, the KDP Print version will probably remain on the Amazon store, confusing people.

Also can I control "look inside" pages of what to reveal or not?

Several people have reported success in asking Support to adjust the length of the sample, but you can't for example ask for chapter seven to be displayed instead of the first 10 percent.

(Don't trust KDP to publish a print edition. Don't trust CreateSpace to publish an ebook. Each does one thing well and the other thing poorly.)

Good luck! -- NJ

Default LI for an e-book is 10%; default LI for a CreateSpace book is 20%.
