Set up 2 rods, bomb and method and see which works best. But I would (if possible) take a wander round a day or 2 before you fish it and make note of what the majority are using.

Depends on the venue, known tactics and form. But.
Fish both and sometimes chop and change to try and keep the bites coming. Could be viewed on some venues as tactics to keep separate too. If the fishing is hard then the bomb and pellet approach, if they fancy a bit, then the method.

I use method when constantly hitting same feature and not loose feeding, Bomb for when i am loose feeding just pellets or having to sit and wait longer for bites.

Impossible to give advice on. Bomb (pellet, boily, wafter, corn, maggot), Method (same list of baits plus groundbait or pellets or both), pellet feeder, Banjo, hybrid ditto re choices.

You just have to make a decision then asses the reaction of the fish.

Decision based on past experience and knowledge combined with what you have confidence in. One thing is certain, you will never fish a method of bait well that you have no confidence in.
