Wired mag recently had an article about biocells although not through photosynthesis. The article discusses using sugar ingesting bacterial. No idea how it works though
Yes, this is a simple math problem. Since cells do not have a circulatory system, the speed of osmosis and diffusion(therefore cell processes) depends upon surface area. Examine the surface area to volume ratio for different sizes. Also try them for different shapes.

Actually, wired magazine just had a feature article on artificial blood. This stuff has the abilitiy to carry oxygen but that's about it so it's not a long term solution. I believe it's only used in long surgeries.
