Go with the 55t. 75 will be really slow.

Yes, but use actuall brazing fuel, propylene etc, not those small butane torches.

The twin bottle hobby torch you'll find at Evil Orange and other box stores will work fine, you will go through some fuel though. There is a review here on it. From this info, specialty gas isn't necessary because you're mixing oxygen with the mapp gas which significantly increases heat output.
I used to think I was indecisive, but now I'm not so sure.
