The trouble with tolls just on motorways is that it would force traffic onto other roads as people try to avoid paying.  If there is an outer congestion charging zone then I think it would need to cover all roads.

Also for park and ride, I don't know if you mean there should be additional car parking at stations around the M25, or if drivers would come off the motorway, drive to a car park and then get a shuttle bus to a station.  If the latter, I don't see this being particularly successful as I think drivers will see it as too much hassle and they might as well drive to a station with car parking already. For expansion of existing car parks, I think this will depend if the operator/land owner can make money from it.

The other problem with park and ride in general is that it doesn't scale very well. Doing some quick sums, if you wanted to provide car parking for everyone on a single Crossrail train, you would need over 4 football pitches worth of land area.  The general approach should be to get drivers to go to their nearest train station, not drive closer to London then park.
