    As to the warranty, I would go to the Apple Store and ask there.

    I don't know how recently you mean by "these days," but I bought mine off an eBay seller a year ago with no problems.

    applecare stays with the machine, you don't need to do anything if you need to use applecare services.

    i'm 99% sure of this, search around the forums

    If the machine is under AppleCare the coverage is supposed to be transferred. You can find the details in the terms of the AC agreement.

    I've sold a bunch of Macs and have done the transfer every time. They can also deny a service claim without an original receipt, which is also in the terms. There is a lot of misinformation on these forums in regard to this.
