These are very generic questions, not related to Cygwin per se.
Grab first available book on GCC and read the answers from there.

I don't know, what you mean here, but I suppose the answer is the same.

Cygwin aims to provide POSIX compatible(as much as possible within operating
system restrictions) execution environment.
This is NOT an emulation, but a compatible API and a set of tools.
Some caveats exist, as with any compatibility layer, but your mileage may
vary. Depends on the nature of your applications, you may never face them.
