For the first part of your problem, I would suggest to visit this online
server where you can model your loop, http://falc-loop.seoklab.org/  . It
utilizes homology modeling kind of analogy to add the loop.

Time span within which a disordered loop gets converted to alpha-helix is
not so precise and thus can not be truly predicted. Run for a few tens of
ns and see whether any change is happening to that loop region. 2fs time
step can be used provided you have to use proper constraints.
