e.g. one stick is clocked at 667Mhz and the other at 800Mhz. Also, If I were to later change to both sticks being 800Mhz, would I have to do anything else to make sure both slots run at 800Mhz?

If you mix and match, the higher clocked sticks will run at the speed of the lowest clocked stick.

is it even noticeable say if you have 8 gigs?

If it's 800 to 667 maybe, but 1600 to 1333 not really any noticeable change.
