Yes you can pick and choose the downloads you want once you have installed the installer, if that makes sense.

Yes you can. When you download the installer you can choose the default (all apps) or custom install where you can select only the apps you want. Once installed it will not bug you with notifications as the initial WLE installer has already been installed

Even if you get stuff that you did not want, you can uninstall the components individually.
