As far as guitar is concerned i dont know of any good guitar in 10K price range. I hope u are making the right choice.
Yes different Amps sound different. It all depends upon what tone u like in the end.
If u r not planning to buy pedals or processors in the near future then go for Roland Microcube with COSM Effects. Excellent practice amp. U can experiment a lot with the tone..
Kustom, strangers are good too but u will be restricted to play on Clean and Distortion channels only. There will be less variations in the tone unless u use processors or pedals to manipulate ur tone....
