I can't help with most of the questions, but I have signed a Visa Waiver to
enter the States before (I hold a .uk passport). When I signed mine, I
didn't have to go and get a visa - which otherwise I would have had to - but
I waived all my rights once inside the US, including the right to silence,
the right to sue for false arrest, etc etc...

If it's the same thing now as it was then, you can sidestep the visa
requirement if you don't mind not being counted as a person once you're
there ;-)

This was late 1990s, so things may have changed.
