You can use the 'unnumbered style with the section function. In
scribble, it would look like this:

@section[#:style 'unnumbered]{... the section name ...}

I always have trouble finding the documentation on styles in Scribble. 
In this case, start with the docs for 'section'. It says "like 'title'",
so jump to the docs for 'title'. In the discussion on styles (2nd
paragraph), it says to see the docs for 'part' (the structure that
represents sections). The styles that apply to sections are explained

I don't have answers for any of the other questions.
