Default Novice Questions About Merges

Is there a way to query the db to find out what numbers merge with a base number? For instance, there are at least 5 numbers that merge with 4788: 314718, 244384, 212712, 33552 and 6102. These are based on merges through the chain of these shown. Are there other numbers that merge with 4788? Since it is the lowest, you can't see any from the 4788 page.

A number is considered finished, workwise, if it merges, but a termination is better. When looking for a new sequence for Team effort, would a number which has lots of merges be of any more interest, since, if it terminates, it will terminate all the others?

Would a number that has lots of merges, be any more apt to cycle?
