There's a 90-day free trial available (probably - and hopefully :) - a big button on http://windowsazure.com). You'll still be required to enter billing information but you won't be charged and the account will be cancelled after the trial period if you don't explicitly unblock the spending limit (set at 0).

Sure. When you have a VM on your azure subscription, you'll find the VHD url directly in the portal (use azure portal to launch that) or by calling azure vm disk list --json

Thanks for your detailed feedback, I usually learn by doing and that helps a lot.
