It does take care of that. It even takes care of recommend & suggest.
It uses "apt-cache depends" to read the dependencies.

No, it's not a problem.

No, it can't do that natively.

Yes, this should do the trick I think.

It should be done automatically. debian-cd always includes all packages of
priority higher than standard.

Yes, check the README for the "local" repository (for .deb packages) or
make extra for including any other file.
