Saving sequences

I plan to take my songs to a studio that uses Cubase. I of course use Cakewalk along with my QS6.1, DM5, and Virtualizer DSP1000Pro. What I am trying to do is avoid lugging my whole computer station to the studio. Now, when I save my songs as .mid I can save them as sequences to SRAM cards according to soundbridge. (I'm still trying to figure that out). Is it possible to play the tracks of the sequence individually so I can record track by track at the studio. Or is the sequence one block of data that just plays and all panning, etc. must be done prior to saving the song as a sequence? And what about the the .wav (the audio data) on the FlashRam cards. Do those [samples] act like other QS6.1 programs - you play a key and the sample plays. Can they be triggered to play with the sequences? I believe saving SysEx data/banks is at the root of the answer to my problem, BUT, I don't think I'm quite understanding what I am doing. When I lay down midi tracks in cakewalk I save all the programs I use for that particular song as a mix to an SRAM card. I think I want to save sys ex data in my cakewalk songs. But, I noticed that when I open some of the default songs in cakewalk a screen pops up and asks if I want to send sys ex data to my midi gear. I can't seem to get that to happen.
1) What data is being sent to my midi gear? Is it song data or just info about the patches I used to make the song?
2) Is this something I would want to do with my songs?
3) Do I need to move my banks from my SRAM card to the user bank before I attempt SysEx data?
4) Should I just bring the workstation to the studio?
5) How would I trigger the rest of my midi gear using sequences?
Sorry for the long post. I am just hoping to get pointed in the right direction. I appreciate all the help you can offer.
