    Pretty much.

    As said before, don't try this at home.
    Or do, whatever.

    I hate part (only) warranty anyways. Homeowner installs get no warranty. Better profit that way.

    Go with the heat pump.
    Even if the place isn't setup for "perfect" heating, your still going to be dumping heat into the space at a 1/3 of the cost of your baseboards.

    You need a contractor. All gas furnaces have flues.
