If I order a hamburger and french fires as a side, should I say "I'll have a hamburger with fires" or "I'll have a hamburger and french fries"?
In the US "fries" is a common abbreviation for "french fries" and any server will immediately understand what you want whether you order a "burger and fries" or "a hamburger with french fries" or "a burger with fries" or any combination of the above. (In fact, it is customary at many fast food restaurants to be asked "do you want fries with that?" if you order just a hamburger.)

Actually at most fast food places they have the available meals numbered, so you just have to ask for a #5 meal or #5 combo. A "combo" or "meal" includes fries and a drink.
Not in the context of a fast-food restaurant, no.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
