ESC programming, CC -- get the Phoenix Link USB adapter, download Castle Link software, program away. Just be sure to set Current Limit to either Disabled or Insensitive.

BEC also uses Phoenix Link to program the output voltage.

I flew my 550e 3G system using the stock ESC without an external BEC for 12 flights before the ESC went up in smoke. I replaced it with a Castle ICE 100 and have been using the ICE 100's internal BEC for over a year now, no problems whatsoever.
