You will not want to use egress-method negotiated return as your egress method to a 6K since this will be processed in software and may cause high CPU on the 6K. If you need to use GRE as the egress to a 6K we recommend you use egress-method generic-gre.
Please see the configuration guide section on generic GRE for more information.
Yes IP Forwarding will work. However, make sure your routing is sound; meaning that it's not possible for traffic to hit a 61 or 62 redirect statement twice on the same local LAN effectively redirecting traffic to your WAE twice which would cause packet drops due to the WAE recognizing this as a routing loop (you would see syslog messages similar to this if this occurs...

The exclude command is not required unless you use a redirect out statement or configure generic gre as the egress method.
Yes, if your WAE is directly attached to the 6K, point the default gw of the WAE to the HSRP address and the wccp router-list will be the two physical IPs of the 6500.
We would suggest you use l2-redirect and mask assignment, along with redirect in statements for 61 and 62 on your LAN and WAN facing L3 interfaces respectively. This will allow you to take full advantage of the 6500 hardware to perform the redirection.
The only configuration required on the 6500 is to enable the 61 and 62 services globally, and place the redirect in statements on the appropriate L3 interfaces.
Moquery is the command line cousin of Vizore, it's very helpful and efficient sometimes during the troubleshooting. This article aims to provide moquery cheat sheet to the users for some most common seen scenarios.
