Why would you want to use that have of a weight of oil?Thats too high of a weight for that engine. Stick to the recommend weight that's your best bet.

I would use 5w 30 oil valvoline thats what I use but castrol or mobil is good. If your not burning oil you can use synthetic oil but if you are using oil I wouldn't use synthetic oil. If you use too heavy of a oil over what is recommended it can effect fuel economy etc. Also in some engines it can set off the check engine light or cause other problems.

The super tech oil I believe is the Walmart house brand oil I have no idea who makes it. If your burning oil then I would conventional oil. Also yes you replace the oil filter every time you change the oil.
