Time Machine uses HFS+. When you plug it into your Mac, you'll have to reformat it (so, you'll want to back it up).

OS X will recognize FAT32 but you won't be able to use it with Time Machine.

According to the tech specs, it'll run on 10.9 (source (http://www.adobe.com/ca/products/premiere-elements/tech-specs.html)). Are there some specific concerns that you're worried about?

I'm going to guess that people who buy Rolexes are not going to buy an AW and if they do, they won't be wearing it as a replacement.
