A new friend of mine wants to put Expose on his Decimator. Decimator has no agility can he gain the extra weapon damage through reducing his agility if he has none to lose?

Yes, even FF recommended exactly that.

It's fun to use both Expose and Experimental Interface on a Decimator so you can still focus or TL to modify the 4 attack dice.

They also recommended loading K-Wings with bombs you could drop when you executed a SLAM.

It's not just fun, it's necessary for Expose to make any sense. Using your action to roll one extra red die is statistically worse than using it to get a focus token.

Yes, even without the agility cost, it's still "too expensive" to spend an action to get an extra die. As above, if you throw on Experimental Interface and take TL + Expose (for stress) on, say, Chiraneau, you get into a space where you're rolling an extra die + TL + pseudo-Focus, and that is a lot of attack power - but for a big price in both squad point cost and opportunity cost, since you can't have both Experimental Interface and Engine Upgrade, for instance.
