    Fresh install means nothing else but the OS will be on the drive after the install. You reformat the drive, destroying any and all data and apps. Before proceeding make sure you have a back up of your system.

    Correct. You may be able to re-download those through the App Store as well, I believe.

    Assuming you have signed into the App Store from your MBP and "registered" the iLife apps prior to reformatting, you can download them for free after you do a Lion restore.

    I just did this myself recently after putting in a SSD and doing an Internet Recovery.
