I'm trying to set up transactional replication from a SQL Server 2005 SP3 server to SQL Server 2008 R2 server. I was hoping to use the push model, but I've been told that it can be strenuous on the server/database being replicated. Is it best to use pull subscriptions when trying to minimize the impact on the main/production server/database?

This is true particularly if the distributor is the same server as the publisher. Using pull subscription moves some of the load to the subscribing servers. Another option however would be to move the distributor off the publishing server.

Yes and it is the recommended approach of implementing in Production servers where load in PROD servers is high.

I am also new to replication and I think that pull subscription is good to reduce publisher load.
