If you have a capacitor charged to a voltage v1
then you connect another capacitor in parellel, which is charged to a voltage v2
then some charge from the capacitor charged to high voltage go to other capacitor
and now , voltage across both those capacitor is v3, which is in between v1 and v2.

charge sharing is important phenomenon in dynamic circuits you can think of this as:
1. There is finite capacitance of output node(Say node A) in a ckt. , and thus charge is stored in it (Say digital 1 level is 1v).
2. For this circuit when evaluation phase of next stage is started this charge is re distributed (...)

In charge pumps to remove charge sharing a unity gain opamp is used.
Again to minise current mismatch or increase resistance of current sources, a servo opamp can be used as shown in razavi books.

ther is a trade-off between transistor size and efficiency:
larger transistors need more charge at their gate, thus there is a optimum value for the size.
BTW, I think 75% efficiency is not so bad specially if it is low power!
