It normally takes 6-8 weeks for back payments to be paid, you may be able to speed thing up slightly if you can arrange for a copy of the Decision Notice from the Tribunal to be sent directly to the ESA Payments department.

The SG rate is about £6 more than the WRAG rate, but depending on your circumstances, you may be eligible for additional payments, it will depend on whether you are already receiving or are eligible for Income Related ESA, so it could be more.

I assume that you were previously on ESA(CB), they should put you back onto it, with an ESA(IR) top-up.

As you are eligible for ESA(IR) and are now in the Support Group then you should also receive the Enhanced Disability Premium backdated as well.
