Re: Is my boat designed to use both headsails or one at at time?
Tacking a genoa around an inner forestay is a genuine pita. Furl it in for each tack. If the inner forestay isn't necessary for mast support (it may be) and you're putting a genny up front, I would remove it, until I planned to go offshore. Our inner forestay is wound up in a cockpit locker and it's never come out yet.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
