What load does the application place on the DC when collecting (A) the changed data (B) the changed data along with security event log records?

ADChangeTracker extracts only the changed data from your DC and results in practically no additional load on your DC. It tracks and gathers only the incremental changes. If you use Security event log data, depending on the size of your Event logs, there will be some processing time to extract the relevant events using event log queries. Event log query times typically vary depending on the size of the logs, the native auditing load on the system and the complexity of the query.
