Is it ok to use stage 1 map if all parts are not cobb?
Brand of the parts doesn't matter. It'll work the way it should as long as you have the correct part in general.

Stage 1 is considered a car with an intake installed.

Your preference, once it's flashed it's done. Most of us keep it mounted to monitor gauges and health of tune and fuel

So it stays on ecu once it's unplugged? I will do that while driving but if going to be parked I wanted to lock it up

The tune file and firmware is indeed flashed to the ECU. Post-flashing, the AP becomes a real-time monitoring tool and log file collector. So the car runs no differently post-flash with the AP connected or disconnected.
