Hamlet directs his actors to speak "trippingly" because it will be more like real speech. Hamlet might value emotional constancy because he tends to get carried away by strong emotions. Here, he asks his soul, which knows so well how to seal itself, not to restrict his words, while at the same time making sure that his words don't become actions.
It's a delicate balance, and he wants to make sure he gets it right. Hamlet doesn't intend to speak kindly to his mother, but also won't hurt her, despite his desire to.
These conflicting passions make both his tongue and soul hypocrites because their thoughts and actions are inverted.
In Act I, Scene V, the Ghost explicitly told Hamlet not to hurt his mother, telling her that she's not his real enemy. Here, Hamlet keeps his word to the Ghost, but can't promise that his mother won't think that he wants to hurt her, since his words are so sharp "daggers".

He wants to know why they've been spying on him and pressing him not to joke around when it's clear he doesn't want to be their friend anymore. Essentially, Hamlet's asking Guildenstern what his problem is. Hamlet might think the proverb's a bit musty, but he nevertheless feels that it's an accurate description of his situation.
Claudius has assured him that he's next in the line of succession, but that can change. For instance, if Gertrude has a son with Claudius, or if Gertrude dies and Claudius remarries and has a son with his new wife, that son would be the heir.
There are many scenarios in which Hamlet doesn't become king, and few in which he does. This line directly relates to Hamlet's line about how his soul "sealed thee for herself.
