If I get el toro, will he be automatically promoted. No, not at thirty five, but at fifty, since I am ten levels ahead. So, will he be promoted or would I have to do the quest.

He promotes at level 40 so if you are at 50 he will tell you right away that he needs to talk to you in a tavern. Yes you will have to do the promotion quest but you will really enjoy it. It's quite a hoot.
If you are 50th level when you get El Toro, he will 51st level. You will still need to fulfill his promotion quest to get the Esprit De Corps power and extra epic. I recommend you teleport to a friend in MooShu to get to the quest locations. you will still need to do the fights alone but they are easy.
