Graf have many different models for many different foot shapes. Bauer Nexus are a wide model which you could consider. Obviously, the best idea would be to try as many different models of many brands to find the one that fits your foot best.
Concerning the orthotics issue, a great idea would be to get molded Graf Sidas Custom Hockey Pro Footbeds for whatever skates that you end up buying. I have them and while they aren't cheap at around $130/pair, they are one of the best gear purchases I've ever made.
I wouldn't say that, it depends on the extent of the width and ankle.
