Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you drive) the Altima's KA24DE wasn't built with screaming top-end power as a priority. If low and mid-range power isn't a priority, cams will be able to shift the powerband towards the top-end. In short, you'll "borrow" some power from the mid-range and add it to the top-end. (That's not exactly how it works, but that's the basic idea).

Or what you can do is just take the piping off that connects to your MAF to you filter, and get an adaptor plate and connect it there

with the 1st gen altima engines having more low-mid range power, would you get faster acceleration by shifting around 5000 rpm, or waiting till the redline to shift?

cheap top end, WAI/e/h/i/pulley. Nitrous wont help your top end, that will help you accelerate faster. nitrous users are idiots for using it after 2nd gear. the only other thing that will help you reach top end is a turbo or a supercharger.
