I for one will gladly answer a question and then forget all about it. Ask
again next week and I will most likely have no idea who you are. You'd
have to introduce yourself every time. (goldfish syndrome?)

What difference does it make if it is a samba server or a windows smb
server? A goal (at least in my opinion) of samba is to behave like a
windows server does.

The samba client tools connect to a windows smb server or a samba smb
server in the same way. So the docs for your 3rd item should in most cases
also apply to your 4th. Or?

The smb-clients list is pretty quiet, most people use the samba list.
You may want to ask there instead, after taking the mandatory look in the
list archives:

Your questions are not specific enough for me to even know if I know what
you are asking.

You hinted at something not working with smbclient. I think you have a
greater chance of getting help if you post the exact command used and the
output you get, with a description of your setup (authentication/directory
services could be a lot of things ... AD, LDAP, or just a PDC and then is
the samba box PDC or do you have a separate windows box for that ...)
