Would it help to wrap the boot that goes from the carb to the air box under the seat in that gold reflective tape, to keep the heat away from the intake, therefore getting cooler air into the engine? What about wrapping the header in Exhaust wrapping so some heat stays away from the cylinder head? Would it be worth anything (power, running better etc.), or will it not do anything at all?

You aint going to see ANY performance advantage. 

You fix problems with a heat sheild, like melting boots/fenders on exhaust or something like that. 

You dont gain power with a sheild

 Heat shields on the intake have been used in many applications. The ones I've seen have been down stream of the carb. though. I think keeping the fuel cool was more of a concern than the intake air.

Header wrap on 4-stroke is good though!  Less burns.

The only thing I would hate it mud getting caked on to the wrap

 That short distance, wrap will hold heat in......

Normal intake heat shielding is a sheet of metal (like a wall) separating the heat of the engine from the intake. Not needed on a bike because of the airflow.
