10/4/2004 You choose the two target creatures when you activate the ability. You do not have to choose Chromeshell Crab. You choose whether or not to do the exchange on resolution.
10/4/2004 The exchange fails if either target is not still on the battlefield at that time.
10/4/2004 The exchange fails if either you no longer control your creature or the other creature is now controlled by you.
10/4/2004 The creatures can't attack until you start a turn with them under your control. So you can't swap and then attack.
10/4/2004 The trigger occurs when you use the Morph ability to turn the card face up, or when an effect turns it face up. It will not trigger on being revealed or on leaving the battlefield.
