Question on extension tubes

I have no photo(s) to post but thought this might be the place to ask.

I have a 105 non-vr micro. I want to get farther away from my subject so a 200 micro would be a good choice. However, I have a 70-200 vr zoom and can easily borrow extension tubes.

Would the zoom and extension tubes be an acceptable substitute?

Is there a chart that would show the focusing range at 200 for various Kenko extension tubes?

What would be disadvantages aside from the inconvenience of switching tubes and having a limited focus range?

The 70-200VR works very well with diopters such as the Canon 500D.

Extension tubes take away too much light. Also, I don't know if there are extension tubes that communicate AF and VR between lens and camera.

Cheers
