I use c:\TeX\texmf etc., but that is my personal choice. MiKTeX will
suggest creating \texmf (for package files) AND \localtexmf (for personal
files) you may even find you want another; it clearly makes sense to have
these all under one base, e.g. c:\TeX.

No just follow the instructions and read the basic readme files etc.

And do as in point 3. above.
