Yes you can use heat tape to protect PEX piping
No it won't burn out. It's designed not to, but if it's not in direct contact with the pipe it will be less effective. But if you wrap it all in insulation that will help
Aluminum tape is not a good idea.
Just wrap them with insulation
You're welcome. Binding the PEX and heat tape every foot is a good idea
Do you have any more questions?
