Question: When Richie wakes up Frank, he tells him about the gypsies that are camping in a specific area and to give him a call the moment he sees them. Since Richie already knew where the gypsies were at, why use Frank at all?

Answer: Because the Gypsies were not there, they were away. He wanted Frank to sit and watch for their return and let him know they were back so he didn't need to sit and do it himself.

Answer: No, he fed it to the man who is friends with his wife. He is jealous of him and believes they are having an affair.

They were having an affair. This was seen when Billy came home and saw a vision of Heidi and his "friend" Mike kissing each other passionately. Another hint that they were having an affair is that when Billy calls home after being gone for so long, Linda says that Mike has been visiting the house quite frequently.
