    Did you sync to the "stock facebook" account? If so, delete the account and go to the market and download "facebook for android" - this will remove the Facebook contacts from the stock account and you can select how you want to sync them when you install FB for android.

    To import your contacts from SD - open the contacts app (address book) in app drawer - hard menu key - more - import / export - import contacts from SD card...(I hope the path is similar for 2.1 if not the same)....

    Failure isn't falling down, failure is staying down.

    Of course you can...I do not believe that there is much harm in them running altho it may be annoying to see them in the running processes, the system will manage itself...with that said - here are some threads to review...

    A thread that discusses how the OS manages processes...
    Androidology (& Android OS Memory Management [task killers])

    You can root your phone and remove / rename so you do not see them running...
    Removing the Bloat

    There is this thread where it talks about an app called "autostarts" - it also requires that your phone be rooted...
    Give Autostarts a Try....
