@1: Try copying the iPhoto library over, and not moving it. Then after copying is done, delete it from the original location. Use the Option+rightclick on trash+empty trash.

@2: Not sure what your issue is. You can just drag the photos over to your desktop, thumb drive or wherever right from iPhoto. If you want better exporting options, use the File > Export option.

Try this. If you are running Leopard, hit Command+O while in say Safari or something (that's file > open). In the sidebar, locate your Photos under the Media tab. Try dragging stuff from there onto your external.
