Default 2 questions: Weighting handstands and Iron cross vs. squatting

Question 1: Pretty self explanatory- is there any easy way to weight a handstand? I have my weight vest, but it's kinda awkward inverting with it on. recently i've been noticing a lot of benefits from just weighting basic positions in their helpfulness in developing more advanced positions.

Question 2: Realistically, would it be advisable to significantly reduce squatting to get better at iron crosses? i'm not saying i would do this, but it just seems that the more weight you could cut from your legs, the easier a cross would be.
