Yes. You need to balance loads since you are not getting an extra 100 amps, your overall limit is still 200 amps.

As many as you wish, as long as you do cross 200 amp limit

It depends on your skill level. Not difficult to change it to a 100 amp panel if you know what you're doing but to upgrade to a 200 amp panel requires quite a bit more effort. This is assuming it is the main panel and not a sub off a 200 amp main.

The rating of a panel dictates the maximum current of the panel and is protected by a breaker of that rating. If you had 200 amp service to your house and only had a 100 amp panel then you could only draw 100 amps before the breaker tripped.

Yes but if the total current exceeds 200 amps the panel will be overloaded and the main breaker will trip.

Yes you can. Just keep in mind that each panel added increases the load on the main breaker.

200 pounds of feed

20 kg. will provide 100 gm./person

You should figure two fajitas per person, so that would be 200 to feed 100 people. You would need one pound of ground beef to make four fajitas so to make 200 you would need 50 pounds of ground beef to feed 100 people.

200

no .If you max out the sub panel you have 100 amp in the main panel

It is: 200/100 times 100 = 200%

100

100% of 200 = 200
