No, there are no restrictions. We usually add vendor information and then
pay close attention to any complaints from users who actually try to
purchase from the vendor. If several people report problems, a vendor can
get de-listed quickly again.

No, you do not need to pay us anything. However, we would _really_
appreciate it if you donated to Debian a certain percentage of the money
you make: Creating a Linux distribution is not easy, and we are constantly
in need of sponsors to be able to buy servers, bandwidth etc.

They can be copies of downloaded images - actually, Debian itself *only*
offers downloadable images, you cannot get CDs/DVDs directly from us.
Please read <http://www.debian.org/CD/faq/>, it contains more information.
