Max fan speed depends on the fan model. It's like asking the max speed of a car. They are all different.

Why do you think you have a problem with the fans?

get yourself a can of the air dusters and try blowing out your intakes/exhaust areas as there may be some dust/debris build up hindering the performance of your heatsinks.

also you can try speedfan to control the speeds of your fans.

Check for dust in the vents and on the fans and heatsinks. Although even a few minutes of gaming will head up a chip, if it's not going over 90 and is not crashing, don't see any issue.

Heat sink would be the metal heat spreader under your fan, if the fan does not even work now or not well, I'd just replace the whole thing. You would want to search ebay for a part for your laptop, would be cheapest. would be good for the compound to add to the gpu for the heatsink.

It can be tricky to replace these things on a laptop, may want to find some help if you have never done this before.

You don't want to use a pad AND paste, just the paste. A pad is just the paste hardened in a block so you can just stick it on It's almost always better to use the paste unless for some reason the item you are working with calls for a pad.
