Bear in mind that cats sometimes get lost. A microchip may mean the difference between him being reunited with you and being put to sleep. A microchip wont' inhibit his freedom but it may save his life.
Kitties usually have their first vaccinations at about 9 weeks and 12 weeks, but best check with your vet. 6 weeks is awfully young to be away from his mum, bless him. It's probably a good idea to get him registered with a vet asap and take him along for a vet check as he may well have fleas and worms - almost all kittens do. You can then discuss with the vet what he needs in terms of vaccinations, worming, neutering etc. and when he needs to have everything done.
