1. When using blockchain.info, if I 'Sweep' the balance of a cold storage (paper) wallet onto a new address, can I use the balance?

2. Or do I have the problem of 'change' going to another address?

3. Can I send only a fraction of the cold storage balance to an address?

4. What happens to the change from that^?

Thanks!

When you spend the balance on your paper wallet (for example by sweeping the private key into your blockchain.info wallet), anything that is not spent is sent as change to an address in your blockchain.info wallet. This won't be the same address as the address of your paper wallet. So you'll have to decide what to do with the change-funds. You can either keep them in your blockchain.info wallet or create a new paper wallet where you transfer the remaining funds to.

How do you choose your change address?

In the Blockchain wallet, under "Send Money" tab, choose "Custom" instead of "Quick Send".
From there you can specify your change address. Also, you can choose your input address, miners feed, ...
