If my freind has long-forgotten gohei in play and he then plays swallowing plague on one of my flyers, can he pay two black plus three for a total of 4 damage?

The arguement being he declares x as 4 and gets it for 1 colorless less due to the gohei.

Also, if I have something in play that says equip for one colorless less and the equip cost is 1, does it equip for 0?

That's correct.  First, you choose what X is, then you determine the total cost.  With X=4, the cost is normally , but with the Gohel, you reduce the cost by 1, so it is

Yes, unless the ability says otherwise, such as Power artifact
