You will love having a jackplate.

Looking at your pics I would say a jackplate will make your rig perform better. Moving it back allows less turbulence. I would go at least 10" but every boat is different and it may make your boat sit different with the weight farther back. For a single prop I would also say its too low now but don't know anything about a dual prop.
You should also notice the boat will steer easier both forward and back.

...so, the plate will be mounted next week - A Bob's gen 2 extreme edition 4" manual - ho much higher should I have tyhem mount the engine?

2 hole equivalent is 3,81 cm. Engine will be 11 cm further back, so I say go for 5 cm? (one hole is 3/4 inch, right?)
3 holes is 5,72 cm

As I understand it these plates can be adjusted on water as well.
