No, you can set the share where profiles are with "logon path" parameter, for
logon path = \\%L\Profiles\%U
It's better not to leave roaming profiles in homedir (it's explained in the
samba docs).
However if you put the roaming profiles not in the homedir, then
net use x: /home
won't do what you expect anymore, it'll map the profile share instead of the
home dir; to workaround this you'll have to delete [homes] and create a custom
homedir share.

No, this is not implemented in 2.0.x.

Yes, see:
You have to edit the registry, or use a script which creates *.reg files you
then put in the registry.

I think it should, but I didn't try.
