Hi Mohsen,

You don't need to re glue your rubber.  Once it is on you can leave it.

Tuning is a different thing.  It is illegal to tune your rubber.  With tuning you are applying a chemical to the rubber that will enhance its performance.

The thickness of the rubber effects the speed and spin.  The thicker the rubber the more spin and speed you will be able to generate.

The density of the rubber makes the rubber harder or softer.  It will give you a different feel.  The harder the sponge the less the ball will sink into the rubber.  The more the ball sinks into the rubber the more potential it has to put spin on the ball.  Of course the top sheet of rubber will also effect the amount of spin that you are able to generate.
