I try to explain it better then. I didi my regressione, kept my b. Now
there is a x variable in which I did a variation (I took one of its
observation and I modify it, saying doing a 1% variation. I want then
to know how the predicted values are going to change).

regress y x1 x2
mfx compute, dyex

will compute the effect on the level of y of a 1% change in each x.

Re other q's:

1) you can always compute an R^2-like measure from the squared simple correlation of Y and Yhat.

2) estimating a model with difference GMM is an instrumental variables estimator. One would expect any IV estimator to give you different results than would OLS on levels if your maintained hypothesis in running difference GMM -- that some of the explanatory variables are correlated with the error -- is appropriate.

3) See the Baum-Schaffer-Stillman paper (Stata Journal, 2003) or the working paper version available from my RePEc CV below. If you're going to use xtabond2, read David Roodman's "how to do xtabond2" (available from IDEAS or EconPapers).
