Shift the page file to a platter drive if you have one in the rig and keep it off the SSD.
Indexing is not required since SSDs are already fast enough.
I'd stay away from tweaking tools , since tuning the SSD is relatively simple and less cumbersome on the registry than using any extra software.

If you have a lot of RAM you really don't need the pagefile,but, as a lot of people will argue, it is always advisable to have some little amount of HDD space for your pagefile since a few programs out there might look for it as a minimum requirement.

It's not. I'd do what alyoshka recommends: disable indexing and keep a page file.

Kepp a page file on your ssd. Set it to 2Gb and you'll be fine.
