yes you can put one in (as long as its auto/auto - manual/manual) if you've got decent mods & can justify the $$$ a chip is worth looking into. and nup, can't do anything with the std ECU :(

No, dont bother. Have a look at the 'Sticky' thread in this forum regarding aftermarket ECU's..

Depends after I fitted a Wade 1604 cam to my EF falcon and ran it in with the stock ECU a while later I fitted and XR6 EF one and it improved idle and that. So I think it was worth it.

Didn't the cop cars have standard engines though? So the ECU would be made for that. At least with the XR6/Tickford one its programed for a better cam, and larger exhaust and some minor headwork. The cop ones just got a good shift pattern for autos doesn't it?
