a) I think combined they are great and both are cleansing, but juice alone (as a temporary measure) would provide a greater rest to your digestive system and thus a more aggressive detox.
b) you might consider doing juice alone first (juice fast or juice feast) to get the maximal cleanse and add whole raw foods when you emerge, and indeed maintaining juice as a part of this would be great.
As to weight loss, i believe you can't go wrong with a high percentage of whole, raw, nutrient dense foods (including raw fruits and vegetables and raw juice). This along with exercise, the higher the intensity the better.
