Yep. The V shaped metal stakes are fine.

A flamingo lashed to your tent might push you over the edge and make rebar a necessity.

depends on what your stakes are made of. 4 pieces of 12" rebar are cheap and will give you peace of mind.

The V shaped ones will hold your tent just fine. Probably can't be too fine, but they are a little harder to pull out than round ones, like rebar--you can twist those. I used 10" nail stakes on a little tent that I used as a warehouse and they did fine.

Not in my experience. why take a chance? the rebar pins at Lowes are cheap. It's not like you can run down to the store and get some in the middle of Burning Man. Bring some vice grips to get them out when you leave. Or just bury them which ever is easier.
