best photo paper and card stock for laser printers

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I just purchased a HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M283fdw laser printer and have to toss my inkjet photo paper and 110# card stock.  I'm searching the Internet but having problems finding photo paper in the 4x6 and 5x7 sizes for a laser printer.  I'm searching for LASER photo paper but I keep getting results for INKJET. 

There are 2 paper trays in my printer. One is where I can put one sheet of paper and the other is the drawer where I can stock with LOTS of paper. The one that holds LOTS of paper the "driver"?

When I have searched about card stock weight, I found an answer that one drawer is the driver and it handles one weight and the other paper tray can handle another weight. Some answers I've found online about card stock weight for this printer is that 16# to 43# glossy has been used as well as 47# to 53# matte and 47# to 59# glossy.  One post was thar 110# was used . Plus nothing about if it was in the drawer or the one sheet feed. I don't want to void my warranty by using the incorrect weight and damaging my printer.

So here are my questions:

Where can I find 4x6 and 5x7 laser photo paper?

Which paper tray is the driver?

What weight card stock will work in the driver?

What weight card stock will work in the one sheet feeder?
