Having a bit of a rear wheel nightmare here (read, not doing ones homework...)

Can you fit a 9 Speed screw on freewheel on an old style Hope screw on hub...? My suspicion is no but I wondered if anyone here has experience otherwise...?

8spd freewheels are the same size as 9spd freewheels

The quality of the available freewheels varies a bit. The bearings in a cheapy lasted one ride - ok it was the White Peaks ride (which almost took out the rider) but normally they last a little longer.
