Default Radio and receiver 101 needed, thanks!

I am pretty new to this and need a little help. I have a basic understanding and want to convert all my surface vehicles to FM.

What is -shift and +shift?
Difference between single conversion and dual conversion? And are the components (ie crystals etc) compatible?
Can a synthesized TX tune into a crystal based receiver?
Can a synthesized reciever tune into a crystal based Tx?

Any suggestions for a nice FM radio under $200 welcome too, I had my eyes on the JR XS3. Thanks for your help guys.

1. Methods of modulating the signal sent by the transmitter.
2. A description of how the signal is treated in the receiver. In general (there are exceptions, JR for example) dual conversion receivers are better at rejecting interference and have a greater range. The crystals are not usually compatible. In general, you buy the brand and type crystal specified by that manufacturer for that receiver.
3. Yes
4. Yes (How the signal is produced, synthesized or crystal, matters not. All that matters is if the signal is properly produced, on the right frequency, etc.)
