Apple tech support could help you... But you may not be able to understand them.

Bars are pretty much just feel and preference. There might be some kind of "best fit" for you but just pick what you like and what feels comfortable and go with it.

For your height I'd go for something between 8" and 8.5" width nothing wider than 28"

All personal preference

i don't think you want 28 inch high bars. so thats the width.

For a long, long time I wouldn't touch anything over 8.5", then I got an upload stem & it felt really good. I've been having some problems with My shoulder for many years now & after seeing a Sports physio, they told Me I had to go much taller & wider!! I'm on Perfect 10s right now & they feel fantastic! I am however 6'1 so it's not so bad! I'll be switching to Fit Savage Bars in a couple of months which are 9.85" they have 4 Upsweep which is just the best haha, but I'll also be on a 21.5" Savage Frame & with the monster Frame, the Monster Bars help!

For Your Height, I would recommend something like Subrosa Noster Bars, 8.75" Tall, but they have a narrower box, which means You can cut them down quite narrow for a Bar of that height! I would recommend also if You go with the 8.75" Bars to stick with a Front Load Stem to start off with!
