I would use vector primers but what those are will be dependant upon the
vectors used for your constructs. 

You should be able to verify the inserts from restriction maps of the
PCR'd product rather than having to sequence. It depends what is easiest
for you to do.

The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard.
