    they are both the same note so you can play whichever seems more comfortable.

    This thread provides lots of insight on the subject.
  4. if I did e f g "open a" sounds better then if I did e f g "pressed down a", but sence its basicullay all on the e string it must be a pressed a.

    it can be played either way. If it is easier for you to play it fretting the "A" then play it like that. However, this is not any more correct than playing the open "A" even in the example you are giving.
