comment The uncertainty principle and spin
Traditionally, the view has been that by observing the spin along one direction, you have collapsed the spin wave function and can no longer identify information about the other spin axis. It is analogous to not being able to know the position and momentum of a particle; the microsecond you observe position of the particle you lost all information about the momentum.

comment What besides the metric do you need to set up the EFEs and the geodesic equation?
One can use a Lagrangian formalism to derive the geodesic equations. The lagrangian which will do this will end up being determined by a metric and the particle trajectory, $L = g_{\mu\nu} \dot{\gamma}^\mu \dot{\gamma}^\nu$.
