Our corporate offers only standard 6 cell battery for the Lenovo
X220 laptop that they issue out.  If I want to get an extra battery,

Q1:
is a 6 cell slice (think this must be a battery that's joined/added
to existing 6 cell battery ??) or a 9 cell (this one will require
existing battery to be removed for it to be inserted ??) will
offer continued/seamless (ie no disruption to laptop) power
supply?

Q2:
between the 6 cell slice & 9 cell, which one offers longer extra
operational hours?

Q3:
which of the two is lighter in weight & less bulky ?

The 9 cell is built to provide longer running time. it also may be heavier. You didn't provide specific battery number to compare so we can only assume mor battery means more weight.

Here is a video showing the 9cell battery
