1. Yes
2. Yes, just register your card number with the iTunes store.
3. Just sync your iPhone before firmware update, then jailnbreak, then sync again, you should have everything except apps and vids that were from a previous jailbreak (i.e., vids from Cycorder, and apps like Cydia and other 3rd party apps)
4. Dunno about that one.
5. Push lets the iPhone check at certain intervals if you have mail.
6. Dunno
7. Yes
8. I use Cydia and Winterboard to install some themes, I use SSH to install others.
9. I don't use installer, just Cydia.

1) Yes,

2) Apple iTunes Gift Card,

3) You can redownload them for free, but the unofficial things you downloaded from Cydia or Installer.app will be deleted,

4) You can find an application to automatically switch themes & backgrounds but I'm not sure about downloading videos from YouTube,

5) As Hondamaker said, but also notice that it will absorb a lot of battery power,

6) I doubt you can minimize any application on iPhone :),

7) Yes,

8) You need to download Winterboard and then download themes from Cydia and Installer.app that ARE MADE for Winterboard,

9) In Installer.app, it all depends on the sources you have. Sources = Websites that give you application links to download, but Cydia is like App Store, already has applications and other things that you can directly download if you have an iTunes Store Account.

I hope that answers your questions and I'm sorry Hondamaker for repeating some of your answers.
