While we already know that probe and drouge refuelling will be possible using the wingtip tanks, will there be a centerline feed as well like on the KC-10, or will it have to be installed before flight like on the KC-135?

It's to my understanding that it will only have a centerline feed. http://www.afa.org/magazine/Aug2003/0803tankers.asp states that

"Example: Though USAF wanted plumbing in the wings for wingtip probe-and-drogue refueling, to lower cost, it dropped the requirement. The aircraft will have both a boom-type refueling system and a probe-and-drogue, both on the centerline."

I wonder if the USAF should have ordered the the 767-300 instead of the 200, what do you think?

It's not like you could fit more fuel in a -300, and the additional cargo capacity (volume, rather) would not make much of a difference either. Basically, you would have an airplane carrying a bunch of extra weight around for decades, not good for the fuel budget.  Smile -200ER seems perfect for military (tanker and otherwise) applications, especially seeing as it's the 767 with the greatest range.
