you don't have to buy it you can do it for free by holding L2 press a sim but still hold L2 and it will say trigger age transition or modify traits for active sim

If I adopt a child, is this reward necessary? Or do I have the option of changing his/her traits when I adopt him/her?

An easier way would be to use cheats. 'testingcheatsenabled on' then take the target sim into CAS and change the traits you want to there.

It costs 20,000 lifetime happiness, does the game will remember those points you spent?
Yes.   You spend the 20,000 and change the traits of the individual.  Those 20,000 are removed from the count you have but if you mouse over the treasure chest it will tell many you've accrued over a lifetime.    If you hit the x instead changing any traits, the 20,000 will not be charged.

Will I lose any bonus traits gained through schooling if I select this trait?

Okay, I answered my own question: you will not lose any bonus traits!

Yes, I'm still here and playing Sims 3! Thank you for this guide! <3
