After update to B888 there were 7 home screens, but when I applied vendor update this number was reduced to 5. Is there any simple way to add 2 home screens without running additional laucher etc.? Maybe it could be possible to edit some system file / setting?

Nope. Just have to run a different launcher.

I seem to get phone lags when using a different launcher. Go launcher has been good for me so far but its quite a large program if you start downloading some add on features.

Most others have caused some lag

Is it required to remove huawei launcher (how?) or simply launcher pro will take it's place after installation? I'm newbie trying to learn as much as possible about android.

You don't need to remove original launcher, when you reboot phone you should get the option to pick the launcher you want to use.

My 888 has an option for the HW launcher to add/remove homescreens. On any homescreen press Menu-> Home Settings-> Advanced settings

I checked settings options before asking here and found no such option.

It looks like LauncherPro consumes more power than Huawei launcher. Oh well, you can not have it all :)

As written above - there is no such menu option in my G300...... ROM B888 and installed vendor files.

I didn't install vendor files as they aren't really needed.

Hello,
I have a new G300 for 2 days now and have been discovering its limits.
Thought to register here for the valuable info that I found and for correcting a couple of wrong assumptions mentioned.

One is here and please let me know if that works for you too:
I have seen it somewhere and it worked for me both with the initial stock 2.3 android and with the new 4.03 official OTA update.

Surprisingly enough, I have seen many reviews and even youtube videos that claim that only 5 screens are possible...

Just use 2 fingers together to "squeeze" one home screen (I think "pinch" is the right word, english is not my native language, pls forgive) and a screen will appear with all home screens minimised. There you find another minimised screen with a "+" symbol, just press it and voila! Another home screen is added :-)
I have 7 home screens.

Thanks Nek4d;-) You are a star!

Can confirm it did worked on my G300 on stock ICS. For some reason home screen were reduced to only 2 and couldn't figure out what to do but you have rescued me.
