I prefer total stock market index funds. Not sure of schwab’s symbol but should be easy to find

You can sell whatever you want in your IRA and buy whatever you want.

Correct

I prefer speculative/high growth plays in IRAs vs brokerage due to taxes. If you're only looking to do index funds though going forward, total market is generally recommended. SCHB is what you're looking for.
