Losing 35lbs in 90 days is a bit much given what the P90X program is designed to do (burn fat while adding lean muscle). In fact, only a few men have gotten that much weight loss in 90 days. Instead, I strongly urge you to focus on burning fat and adding some lean muscle. In my first round of P90X, I only lost 15lbs but my figure change was remarkable. To answer your specific questions:
If by the ‘shake’ you mean Shakeology, the value of it is to supplement diets where you may not be getting 7 – 9 servings of fruit/veggies (with the focus more on veggies) each day. If you are doing that already, then you are already in a great position.
Yes you can use regular whey protein. You’ll need to structure your diet to get at least 120 grams of protein in each day.
To maximize weigh loss (again I think you have the wrong focus), it’s diet, not additional exercise. If you have time to do more then take a brisk walk. Too much high or even moderate intensity exercise just raises your cortisol levels which will hinder fat burning and weight loss.
Again, for the first 2 months focus on really ‘bringing it’ to your P90X sessions, particularly the weight lifting/ resistance sessions. Too many women do not push hard enough when lifting weights even though the post workout elevated caloric after burn is much longer (up to 40 hours) with an intense weight workout. So if you do too much cardio, you interfere with the recovery process and hinder your next resistance workout performance.
Lift heavy with good form in the 8 – 10 rep range (ignore Tony when he says women can lift lighter for more reps – he knows better but doesn’t really believe women will bring it the way men will). If you are doing the resistance training correctly, you’ll be too sore to do a bunch more cardio. In month 3 after building up muscle, you may add up to 3 lower body workouts in addition each week. Brazil Butt Lift could work well then.
