Repotting Phal

Hi,

My mini-phal has just finished flowering. I have trimmed the stems close to the base and would like to repot. There are lots of arial roots which are very dry and parts of which are black, but they turn green after watering. Should I trim these? I found a section in easyorchids.co.uk about repotting phals and it suggests you trim any broken or dried arial roots.

Here are my questions:
Should I leave the roots as they are or tidy them as I repot?

Are there any links to repotting through this site that I have overlooked?

I also remember reading that you can put some stones/pebbles at the bottom of your pot to help the water to drain. Anyone tried this?
