What you are looking for is Cyanogen User Profiles which can be found in Settings->Profiles under the Personal section header. Pick a profile or create a new one and select what parts of your phone are active.

No, it is impossible to install a Windows Phone ROM on your Android device. The android devices and its hardware are build and designed to work with Android. Therefore Android is based on Linux and Windows Phone is nowhere close to Linux or its kernel.

You can flash the latest build as each is a full-build rather than a patch. You do not need to install each one incrementally. You should also be able to change the type of build that the updater checks for from nightly to stable (and possibly some others in between)

This is pretty easy to do. Just go to Settings->Buttons and scroll down to Menu button. Below that you see Short press action and you can select your preferred action (Recent apps switcher in your case). That's it. Depending on the developer of the ROM you may be able to remap other buttons as well.

From the CyanogenMod Wiki: "Status 7" Error I have a stock AT&T Galaxy S2 (i777) which had been updated to the latest version of Android from AT&T. I followed the instructions for installing CM 10.1 but received the following error: assert failed: getprop("ro.product.device") == "i777" || getprop("ro.build.product") == "i777" || ...

The "proper" answer would be exFAT. "Proper" because exFAT is crap but since it does "fix" some of FAT's problems, it is the only hassle-free option. Forget NTFS. Ext4 would be a much better option. Should it be properly managed in Android regarding rights management - from my quite recent understanding (latest CM11 as of Jan 2015), Android does not ...
