This is related to 3 & 4. More below.

DrScheme/MrEd now strips the parenthesized letters from the label when
menu keybindings are disabled. So, you need to remove the parenthesized
letters above, leaving

  (file-menu "FAIRU")
  (edit-menu "HENSHU")
  (help-menu "HERUPU")
  (windows-menu "UINDOU")

I should heve made this chaneg myself when I changed MrEd, but I
overlooked the Japanese translation.

This looks like a general problem with finding a font to draw Japanese
glyphs. Since MrEd is having trouble finding glyphs, DrScheme leaves
Japanese out of the list of language choices.

Can you remind me of which version of Windows you're using. Did
previous versions draw Japanese correctly, or is it an old problem?
