I use mol to start Mac OS X and then use scp. I don't remember exactly
how but I had to enable ssh login on the Mac side. As far as I know I
have no filename size limitation.

It should work nearly out of the box. I guess you have ide-cd loaded
(check the output of lsmod). If this is the case, you must unload it and
load ide-scsi instead (rmmod ide-cd; modprobe ide-scsi). You can then
fire up a cd burning software. 
nautilus-burner (or whatever it's called) is not yet in sid. I not found
the perfect soft but combust and xcdroast are useful.

No idea. But I do get a beep (that I would like to get rid of).

Never saw that, looks bad. (note that I am still using ben8+sleep).
