Welcome to the forum, Mark.

A bowl bit - certainly - although if you can put up with sharp corners, you can get by with a straight bit.

Use guide bushings and templates.

A collet extension ? Some members get by without one.

Welcome to the forum Mark, it would be to your advantage to complete your public profile.
A dishcutter bit of between 3/4" and 1 1/4" is very useful for bowls and dishes, as for and extension, I have one but have only used it on rare occasions for deep routed boxes like this one.. Perhaps you will get some ideas from my series of "routing for beginners by clicking on the link.

Don't ever be shy to ask questions Mark, no question is considered stupid on this forum.
