    No, increasing volume shift it toward the side with more gas molecules.

    No, SO3 is a product, so adding product will shift the equilibrium toward reactants.

    so we would decrease the temperature

    Great! Since heat is a product, increasing the temp will shift it toward reactants, so decreasing the temp shifts it towards products. :-)
