4) Doesn't matter, as long as it meets OE spec.

That said, I would suggest you just get Brembo discs, and Textar/Pagid/Jurid pads.
Nothing beats OE pads in terms of braking, but yes there will be plenty of brake dust.

Stay far far away from any slotted or cross drilled rotors. There are purely for looks, and your car will actually brake worse.
Maybe I'm wrong about the pads but I'm pretty sure I'm not wrong about the slotted rotors (not drilled). Stainless lines drastically improve pedal feel I'm told and never need to be replaced.
