1 - That's the speed the compact flash is capable of being written/wrote at.

2 - Like HDDs, there is a file system, so on storages there are file systems, insert into your cam, and use the format on the menu, you should not hit any worries/problems with it :)

3 - The JPEG compression amount, for normal shots the compression is higher, allowing a smaller file size, so you get more shots on a CF. Fine will be a larger filesize so you get less shots, IMO, there isn't really much difference between the two when you just look at it or print it out. It's just compression details

4 - That one you'll have to refer the manual unless you can list out the model and some owners of the same camera can advise you.

5- I can't help you on that. I personally use Transcend and find them good. There many popular brands out there, like PQI, Ridata as well. Do check out the response in the consumer's section
