I don't have answers for all your questions, but maybe other people will
post too.

First, you should use a customized stylesheet in which you can make 
all the necessary changes (see e.g. "4.4. Customizing the Stylesheets" 
in "DocBook; The Definitive Guide").

(define %default-quadding% 'justify)
in the print part of your custom stylesheet.

in the print part of your custom stylesheet.

I prefer (X)Emacs with psgml.

(define %generate-article-toc% #t)
to your custom stylesheet.

This was discussed about 6 months ago on DocBook ML. As a workaround 
there was a change in the stylesheets (if you use v1.54, they should 
contain this workaround). To make this work you have to specify 
"-V tex-backend" to jade.
