Here we are again, checking if by the book, this is a legal use of the spell.
School evocation [fire, language-dependant]; Level alchemist 2, bard 2, inquisitor 2
Components V, S
Casting Time 1 standard action
Area 30-ft. radius
Saving Throw Reflex partial, see text; Spell Resistance special, see below
You unleash an insulting tirade so vicious and spiteful that enemies who hear it are physically scorched by your fury. When you cast this spell, make an Intimidate check to demoralize each enemy within 30 feet of you. Enemies that are demoralized this way take 1d10 points of fire damage and must succeed at a Reflex save or catch fire. Spell resistance can negate the fire damage caused by this spell, but does not protect the creature from the demoralizing effect.
So my questions are :
1. Since he has Versatile Performance :Percussion (Handle Animal, Intimidate), can he use that to make his intimidate check (he has charisma 16(+3), a mw instrument(+2), 6(+6) ranks in perform (+3 class skill) = a bonus of 14 Vs DC 10+enemy hd+wis modifier? (incredibly easy if you ask me)
2. The dc to catch fire, is it a fix dc or the dc related to spell level + charisma modifier ?

1. Yes, he can use versatile performance to sub his Performance skill modifier in for his Intimidate modifier. However, since he's actually making an Intimidate check (not Performing), I don't think he would receive the bonus from his masterwork instrument.
2. The DC to catch fire is the spell's DC (so 15, in this case. 10 + spell level 2 + Charisma 3)
3. That is correct.
