Need some help with ball hockey

I play ice hockey at a fairly high level and play roller hockey during the summer, but this summer, I've signed up for ball hockey. Started to practice on the driveway a few days ago, and I've already run into a few problems:

1) I can barely stickhandle without losing the ball.

2) I feel uncomfortable with the stick (it goes up to just underneath my nose), so I tried a shorter stick (which goes up to my chin) and it feels too small.

3) Slap shot - I can unload it fine, but I have no control in hitting a target.

4) I tend to stop moving my feet because of bad habits learnt in ice hockey. How do I fix that?

5) Any special ball hockey moves / plays that can be executed fairly easily with practice?

Any suggestions? Thanks a lot.
