When I added a blue stripe to my cardi, I added the stripe before I sewed the pieces together. Not sure what the best option would be when adding length to the entire cardi, but it should be fine either with the pieces together or not. Hopefully someone else has an answer who's done it too.
If you pick up stitches at the bottom of any piece, your new stitches will be about 1/2 a stitch "off". So it's generally recommended that you would rip back the ribbing part and knit down from there. You could either add more stockinette and then the prescribed ribbing, or just add a longer ribbing section.
