    most people tend to stick with the region their wii is, but u could install preloader via softmii and enable the region free patching and update blocking ( so u dont install wrong patches for wrong region) so it wouldnt matter anymore

    not much difference except the Hz your tv uses (60hz ntsc and 50hz pal) also sometimes the game name / release date is different

    PAL = Europe
    NTSC U = USA
    NTSC J = Japan

    Dont install updates from a disc that is from a region different to your wii, you'll get a semi-brick

    Your best off starting with homebrew, cios 249 and a loader and sticking to your own region discs

    Once your a bit more confident and you've read and re-read guides on downgrading (if needed), unlocking your wii to region free, blocking updates and preloader (or starfall), you could install a pack such as miiwii or softmii.

    Go to Wii Settings from the Wii Menu and look in the upper right hand corner.
    It should say 3.(X)U or 3.(X)E depending on your region.

    Yes it works with US, Japan or UK versions. There's two different hacks, one for System Menu v3.3 and below (0.1beta1) and one for System Menu 3.4 (0.1beta1).

    You can read about the twilight hack here: http://www.wiibrew.org/wiki/Twilight_Hack

    Well, there are a couple more steps after installing the Homebrew Channel. I would highly suggest using SoftMii.
