Yes. they're going to be much taller by the time they finish. About 3x as tall and wide.

That's a long veg time.  How tall are the plants w/o pot?  How tall is your tent?

I'd have probably pulled the plug on vegging at a month but my tent is only 5-1/2' tall and I need room for the light plus 1' for heat which eats a lot of growing height up.  That said, I'd flower those now.  HPS 12/12.

MH is for vegging, which you have already done.  That's usually 18/6.

Yes, i thoght so, althought they have a lot of stunted growth.

My tent is 6"6 feet by 4 wide i think. going to have to raise he light, but plenty of room length wise.
