I'll take a shot at a few of these to get things started:

2. Are you looking for a key combination to launch these programs or do something else? You can make some key combinations in the Keyboard Shortcuts section of the Keyboard system preference pane.

4. Screen Magnification Go to System Preferences and Open the Universal Access preference pane. Click the seeing tab to get at screen magnification. Be sure to click the options button it will bring up more controls.

7. If I remember correctly the chips in that Mac Book Pro are rated up to about 150 degrees (60+ C). As long as you don't have the ventilation blocked (such as by leaving it sit on a soft surface such as a bedspread) you should be OK. The Mac will shut itself down if terms reach a critical stage. The Mac pros can feel very hot because quite a bit of heat is dissipated through the metal casing.

12. Upgrade installs keep the user folder and other data in place. Some Apple applications may be moved/replaced if they are being replaced with a newer version. I don't remember ever losing data due to this but a backup is always a good idea.

13. What are you viewing the pictures in? Have you tried using the arrow keys?
