Primarily, the pilots would lose some of their ability to synchronize with them. The biggest reason they can is that the soul inside is something close to them, something they once knew, but now miss. The same principle was from when Kaworu synchronized with Unit-02. He was an Angel, and therefore was a familiar sight to the Angel part of the Eva. More proof of this is when Unit-01 refused to act without Shinji in Introjection.

Not really. Units 05-13 used dummy plugs of Kaworu and had no souls within them (that we know of), so the Angel bit in them took over control. I can't really see any way around controlling an Eva effectively without the use of a copy of an Angel's soul or a child with an attachment to whatever soul is inside the Eva. Otherwise, you end up with just another Jet Alone.

Well, some people think that 00 might not have a soul in it. That's why some of the Angels go attack 00 while it's active so they can meld with it. And before you say that Rei's soul is in there, remember that Rei's a part of Lillith, who's an Angel.
Rei's soul is Lilith, as Kaworu's is Adam. Like Kaworu, Rei can synchronize with an Eva that lacks a soul. In comparison, when Shinji tried to synchronize with the likely soulless Unit-00, the Eva in turn tried to absorb him into itself, thereby gaining a soul.
