To answer that last question first: it is at your discretion.

If you specify the OID in numeric format, you don't have to use loadmibs.

For more information, see 

Also, not *yet* in the faq (but coming soon):
if you use a normal counter in the normal way, and receive less than 300
errors per 5 minutes, you'll end up with < 1 per second.  This is rounded
down to 0 by MRTG. Use the perminute or perhour option.
