Answer: 
The Half Link chain can be beneficial to bike/gear setups where having the rear wheel 'slammed' in the dropouts does not allow for the chain to travel around the driver 'neatly'. However due to the design, the plates bend straight and the chain will stretch much quicker and ultimately break.

The full link chain is the stronger option but not ideal for all bike/gear setups; should you require a specific chain length for wheel placement then you could run just the one half link within the full link chain.

I am looking to replace my Cannondale SL3 9 speed chain. I am sure there are a few protocol to follow. I can't use a 10 speed chain and need to stick with a 9 speed chain.

I also like to have a removable chain link without using a chain removal tool.

Can you recommend please?

As far as i know dura ace 10 speed chains are the most reliable chains in terms of rust resistant due to its coating and build quality, so if i were to use it on my 8 speed drive chain with HG41 8 speed cassette, would there be too much of a problem because of the narrow links on the chain?

Thanks a bunch!

You can use any Shimano 10sp Road or KMC 10sp chain, such as those linked below. For a triple ring setup you should opt for the longer version (114+ links).

The 7901 chain has effectively replaced the 7900 and it is backwards compatible; will work with older 10-speed drivetrains.

For the most efficient shifting you should use a Campagnolo chain, but you should be able to use certain aftermarket chains as well (such as KMC).

Answer: 
The Shimano MTB 11 speed chains are not usable with road groups and likewise with Shimano road 11 speed chains on MTB groups.
That said, they may work but not as smoothly as the correct chain/groups combo.
