Default Questions About Teaching Heel

I am only 5'1" and walking my GSD can be scary sometimes so I want to start teaching my dog the heel command, but I want to get some things clears first.

What should my dog know before I start teaching him heel? And how well should he know them?

Can I teach him heel and still take him on walks? When we are on walks he sometimes pulls, would trying to slowly teach him heel at home confuse him if on walks he is still running around?

On walks he would bark/whimper/lunge at people/dogs, can I still teach him to heel or should I try and get him more use to people/dogs first?

I use the Walking Collar. When we start our walks he would paw at it but stop after awhile until he sees another dog.
