Correct; the usual method now is to set the ID and SECRET using a
transaction key, rather than the username and password.

Correct; no longer needed.

Default is sale. If you wanted to do an auth, then you can "capture" it
later when processing the order from the Admin, under the Order Status
page (also need to set SETTLE_TRANSACTION variable to 1).
