Here's a website I was just looking at. Has all the rules for utrip but i was specifically looking at slow-pitch softball: http://www.usssa.com/usssa/usssa-general/2009SPRuleBook.pdf Hope that helps! =)
I don't know what the "legal" umpire answer would be, but I do know that fastpitch bats are made lighter so they can be swung quicker. It seems like you would want to use a slowpitch bat in slowpitch for the extra power you would get from the extra weight of the bat. There is no rule against it as long as the bat is an approved bat in the league you are playing in, i.e. ASA, USSSA, ISA, NSA.
There is no bat size in high school softball that you must have just pick what size you think fits you best
