I can answer the first two;

1. Yes put - Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5" - without the dashes in your 
InputDevice section of your XF86Config file and restart X and the wheel 
should work.

2. I do it all of the time but not with the right mouse button, I highlight 
the text and then use the edit menu at the top of the console for the cut/
paste option.

I can not answer the other two.
