Default Drag

Rounding the leading edges of your landing gear (I assume you mean sheet metal type) will reduce the drag. Whether you can actually see the difference or not is hard to predict.

About the sharp trailing edges. Ollie can probably answer this more definitively then me. I've done both sharp and dull trailing edges, and can't say that I've noticed a difference. I'm sure it has a big effect on certain types of planes, at certain speeds.
