Charging 6 individual cells in parallel

Hi. I am just wondering a couple of things about charging.

I have a MCPX helicopter which uses 1s 200mah (or 300mah) batteries. I also have a GT A-6 charger/balancer. I bought 4 additional 300mah batteries. So I have 4x300mah 3.7v lipos and 2x200mah 3.7v lipos. I am wondering firstly about charging them in parallel - what I am looking for basically is a cable that would connect up all 6 batteries possibly to my 6s charging port in my A-6 charger. Is this possible to do/get? I know when I am charging normal 3s1p I need to plug in the discharging connector before it will start charging (the deans connector total voltage). So is there a way to disable this requirement in the charger?

Also would there be issue with the differences in capacity? 300mah vs 200mah?

Another unrelated question, when I am charging my LiPOs and I am not in a hurry I often just set them to charge at .33C for example (very slow) or 1/2C. Is this of any benefit to the back to give them a much slower charge?

Thanks for your advice in advance.
