Evolution and Internet Sharing Sims / so what are fair advanced costs?

so what are fair advanced costs to optimize evolution speed & diversity?

primarily to maximize evolution and efectivity of whatever evolutes.
secondarily to keep all kinds of populations alive without one taking over the world.
tertiarily in a small world with as less cancer and bad performance as possible.

Of course I want my bots to pay with energy for junk code by increasing DNA-upkeep (but still want to keep up to +10% junk code without certain death).
Of course I want to speed up evolution by making bots pay for everything that slows down evolution.
But what are the boundaries that work best?

Bot Tavern / Morula Blastula Gastrula Neurula

Is is possible to make a MB that grows to a Morula stadium, cells in a heap tied together without being a mess of ties?

Is it possible to let that one develop to a Blastula stadium, cells arranged in a circle, hollow on the inside?

Is it possible to let that one develop to a Gastrula stadium, the circle of cells flips into hollow-you-shape forming some kind of mouth?

Is it possible to let that one develope to a Neurula stadium, the hollow-you closes on its open part into an "O" that contains another "o" (or hollow "I")?

would it make sense at the simulators point of state?

A Blastula MB could change its shape, make itself bigger or smaller.
A Gastrula MB could swallow other bots (A Blastula could, too, by opening/widing one tie)
A Neurula MB has the ability to develop organs, bones and a central nerve system.
