If the total number of teeth decreases enough to add more slack than you can take up in your horizontal dropouts, then yes. @nsn

@nsn like the answer says: by swapping the chainring and cog for differently sized new parts (i.e., with different numbers of teeth). see this question about gear ratios: bicycles.stackexchange.com/questions/13191/…

Ramps for stunts? What do you mean by speed vs strength? In my opinion, you have to be pretty strong to go fast.

comment Bike lights with beam cut-off to avoid dazzling drivers?
This design feature usually comes from the mirror and orientation of the LED, so it's hard to imagine meaningfully retrofitting a light. In particular, Busch & Muller lights are very good with this: peterwhitecycles.com/b&m-hl.asp

@Blam so is it even necessary then? Not sure that stuff even needs to soak for more than a few minutes.
