Some folks need to widen the notches in the nut and/or the bridge, but I have not had to do that with either of the two banjos I have put Nylgut strings on.
I'm not sure I understand what you mean by "no tone" on the G string you put on. Did you use a tuner or did you tune it using an adjacent string? I usually put strings on one at a time and use adjacent strings to get close and then a tuner to dial it in. My strings stop stretching after a day, but plenty of other people complain that it takes longer for the strings to stop stretching. I would guess that you still be an octave low with that G string.
