The above six points are imperative for a check when adding/removing a new farm administrator.
Not sure about drawbacks but you can change the admin on Farm (you should be admin on the farm to do this).
Login to Server, then go to Programs > Microsoft Share Point 2010 Products > SharePoint 2010 Central Administration.
Once you logged in Central Admin site go to Site Actions > Site Settings > People and Groups - Farm Administrators
From here you can add/remove admin from the farm.
