I can't help with Q1, because I don't know anything about IOS.

You can set it to, say, 1000 ms, temporarily with:
ovs-vsctl set port bond0 bond_updelay=1000
You can set it permanently by setting other-config:bond-updelay in the
XAPI record for the PIF (but this won't propagate to OVS until
interface-reconfigure is rerun).

This is compatibility code for old versions of XAPI, because OVS
supports XenServer 5.5.0. We don't enable it for 5.6.0 and later, by
default, but you should be able to force it on if you are curious by
setting ENABLE_FAKE_PROC_NET=y in /etc/sysconfig/openvswitch.
