Just go to any tailor and point out the issue with the garment and they will know exactly what to do. at least any accomplished tailor will know.
Your swimming in this, the shoulders are very broad, the sleeves are extreemly long as well. I would say your at least a size too big if not more, I would exchange it, there is no way to fix this with alterations.
No, I have several that are contrasting as far as the body being one color and the collar and cuff being another. I don't think I have even ever seen a shirt that resembles what you have just discribed, sounds kind of odd actually.
Blue and grey are stapel colors for a first suit, blue especially. It is very versatile and works for many occasions, but a nice med grey would also do the same. I think you are fine to stick with the grey if that is what you want.
