    1) You buy it through the Xbox Marketplace tab on the 360 using their points system.

    2) No, DRM prevents this, you can play it from a DVD but you need to have bought it first.

    There are demos of all the Live Arcade games.

    No, the DRM is ties your downloads to your console/gamertag and can be a bitch when replacing consoles.

    It hasn't and probably won't be hacked for awhile if at all, same with Wii.
    I think you can get "hacked" downloadable games for the PS3 using a PC to emulate the store, this might have been closed up with a firmware update.

    Homebrew needed cough cough!

    PC + Emulator + Roms will have to do you for the time being.
