Yes the treatments you have chosen may all help with neck pains but you must go to a very experienced therapist and be clear about what your 'neck pains' are. This could be a multitude of reasons and must be treated carefully and referred for assessment by Doctor or chiropractor if they are chronic and treatment is not suitable.
It depends on the type of pain, every body is different you would have to have a full consultation first before any treatment is given.
Yes. Deep Tissue can help you, but maybe not necessary. Swedish Massage with a little of Tuina, can help you using less force in your neck.
All of the above treatments you have suggested will help with neck pain (including stone massage therapy), but I think it is more important to find out what is contributing to the pain. It could be due to an injury, poor posture, your occupation and lifestyle, stress, your mattress/pillows even your chair at the incorrect height for your PC desk - causing you to lean over.
You may suffer from tension in your back, for which your neck is compensating. It may be that you require treatment from a GP/physiotherapist/chiropractor for chronic pain since there may be an underlying reason for this which massage would not relieve.
