1) Whether the 24fps frame rate is a problem or not depends on your expectations of how you want to shoot video and play it back. ~24fps is arguably the de facto frame rate you'd find at cinemas or on TV so you have that film-like feel when playing back the videos so if you just want to record basic video and do little to no editing, 24fps should be OK for you. I don't know the camera's ins and outs but I would guess that if you want to shoot at a higher frame rate (either for more life-like movement or for smooth slow motion playback), you would probably have to reduce your video resolution.

2) The 10 minute limit is probably imposed by the compression and the file system of the memory card as opposed to a problem you can just easily "eliminate". You can probably record for longer at a lower resolution.

Personally I would go for the 255 because of battery life, Plus the lens is slightly wider angle being 24mm over 28mm.
