You only *need* one.  More are nice.

You'd have to find a DNS service that would be your backup, though.

DSL does not have any relevance to the number of IP addresses you
can have.

Neither good nor stupid.  A vanity, but a harmless one that every
geek on this list will understand.

Remember, though, that getting static IP addresses means that
(unless you're dealing with a small ISP) you'll need "business"
service from your ISP, which is more expensive than consumer service.

Having your domain hosted somewhere else will probably cost just as
much as would having your own static addresses, and much more reliable.
