I believe he already said pilsen light, which would translate into pilsner malt

Not necessarily. It depends on the manufacturer.

Yep.  For instance, Briess pilsen light extract has carapils in it.

You definitely  should not use propane in a basement unless you spend the $$ to take proper precautions.  Even then, you should not keep the tank indoors.

Are you aware whether the water heater coil would make a proper substitute?
I usually don't pimp other forums, but Homebrew Talk has a whole section devoted to electric brewing. Read the sticky post "Electrical Primer for Brewers" to get a sense of things.
