Lots of questions!

Let me see if I can hack off some of the easy ones, and let the more
difficult ones dangle for the experts ::grin::

You can easily create a branch for an earlier point in development; so
it doesn't matter.  But, start practising now: make a repository just
for playing with CVS, and practice branching and merging.

You probably don't.  You just make a newer version to replace it.
Say you have a file v1.1 and someone creates a v1.2 that is no good. 
You should book out v1.1 (on the command line that would be cvs update
-p) and use it to create v1.3.

I think you need to specify a system user to map the user raju to; IOW
you need a third field on the line.

You will need to implement some extra scripts for this; it's not part
of CVS.  Hopefully someone else can pick up that question, plus the
ones about mail notification and viewcvs.
