There's a pretty thorough sticky on it, I'll link it..

If you want fish in it on the weekend, you can do the fish in cycle. But it requires regular water changes...

Does it make a difference if I'm using a tank that was used for a few years, then left in a room for a few years? The gravel and filter are the same.

It would make a difference, I think because removed from the tank water, the bacteria would die off especially after a few years. I've done the fish in cycle and it works well as long as you don't stock too many fish at a time and of course do water changes religiously.. I did lose one or two fish so I suggest you don't put in delicate or expensive fish at first and especially not the betta :3

How much time would it take to do the fish in vs the raw shrimp thing vs moving over a handful of rocks from the larger tank we already have?

Oh, if you have a larger tank with rocks do that! That would probably be the fastest, I'd put in some of the other tank's filter media too. D'oh! i didn't know that you were going to do that! Sorry lol!
