Nitrogen fertilizer encourages lots of growth - not something you would normally want for a bonsai. If the leaf color is pale, you could fertilize with a quarter-strength dilution of a water soluable fertilizer. Replanting is something you would do after your regular root pruning session. Generally you would use the same pot, but you'd fill it with fresh growing medium. Hope this answers your questions!
