What size motor is in your boat? That as well as the specs of your prop might limit you to less than 1500lbs of ballast. In other words if you put too much weight in your boat it might not be able to get on plane.
Yes you can retrofit perfect pass, I've never done it but it is talked about often on these boards. You will need to cut a hole in the hull for the paddle wheel unless you use Star Gazer (GPS based system). I'm not 100% sure but Star Gazer might only work with a throttle by wire set up.
The more weight you get in your boat the bigger the wake, a few hundred pounds will make a difference. Weight the front to make your wake longer and more mellow (Rampy), put weight in the back to make the wake steeper. I would start by spreading the weight out evenly Front and Back, see what it looks like and then if you're not happy shift the weight until you find the right combination for your boat and what you like as a rider.
