Default Cancelling An Appointment Date & Its Impact!

Hi friends! With several doubts, I need your help regarding not able to attempt Usmle step 1 on my given extended period of eligiblilty, will it make difference to my reputation as “Irregular Behavior”. I have followed some previous post of 2012/2013 & many of those are clear, still have some issue incase they changed their policy:-
(1) I still have 35 days left for my final Test day & trying my best, but if unfortunately not able to complete course, can I cancell my appointentment date just 3-4 days prior to it & what will be its impact on my Usmle Transcript?
(2) Is it a safe side to inform Ecfmg/Prometric center to cancell my appointentment Today/Tommorrow ( as only 35 days left) or simply not going to Test center on the test day & wihout any prior information to them about cancellation of appointentment date. Which will be a better option?
(3) From previous post, it clears me that it takes 2 weeks to get a new eligiblility period & once the 1 time extended eligiblity period is over, so do I have to do all those paper work (verification of form 186) once again or just a online part with new application fee?
(4) Not a good time to ask my final question, though to relief anxiety. I’m IMG & I have completed my Medical graduation/MBBS in 2009. What will be my chances to get residency in Internal Medicine with medium score (suppose inbetween 220-230) AFTER SUCH A HUGE GAP OF 7 YEARS IF ABLE TO APPLY FOR 2016?

Please share your experience & any info regarding it, any help counts a lot to me & appreciated. Thanks to usmle forums & members!
