    Edit: I didn't realize the Apple store took PayPal. Good question, worth a try! Worst that can happen is it'll say "You are not authorized"... at which point you buy a US gift card.

    Either way the Apple iTunes store will expect an American address when you register the account. You can just give it any US address.

    No. Mainly due to licensing restrictions of the record labels.

    You need a credit card with a US billing address.
