You can do this by editing the

C:\Program Files\Wolfram 
Research\Mathematica\6.0\SystemFiles\FrontEnd\TextResources\Windows\KeyEventTranslations.tr

file (or the corresponding file on your system).  Just make a back up 
before you modify the file and do not put any extra files in that directory.

No, it would be inconvenient for me.  I often use long input 
expressions, and break them into lines manually to make them more 
readable. (E.g. think about Module[].)

Also note that you can use the keypad enter key to evaluate cells.
