as far as I remember it comes with root as username and an empty password.

No, it is not, unless you make it so.

I would recommend using a qcow2 image, you can create one using
qemu-img, and then specify it on the qemu
command line just like you specify the vm image (one option is to use
the deprecated hdb, hdc ... options or
if you already specify it using the new style, then just add the hd to
a new location)

I don't know. But I don't think you need too much. But you most
probably have to resize
the downloaded vm image, or do some magic regarding /tmp and /gnu/store.
