If the GK is pulled around 3 minutes, the top unit would be sent out... if/when there's a stoppage in play, the GK could be put back in with lesser players... then pull goalie again as one normally would.

As far as the line change w/o a goalie, just rotate players to change every few seconds, not all at once. If the team can't maintain possession enough to do this, with an extra skater, then they probably aren't going to win anyway. Also, remember the defense will have to make line change too, which could result in a good opportunity with an extra skater.
The offensive teams bench is located outside the defensive zone so your rotation scenario is not practical and is an invitation for "too many men" penalty calls.

Defensive changes happen when the puck is safe, down ice away from the defenders net.
