First before I go any further. Take that term "web 2.0" throw in a box, seal the box, take it out to sea, tie an anchor to it and bury the term forever. Now to your questions.
1. It's called a tooltip. Plenty of ways to get this from using JQuery Tooltips to the Twitter Bootstrap. But there's no UI way to do this in DW. You will need to code a little.
2.??? I don't understand what you are asking at all here. Please re-state or further explain your question.
Thanks for the help!

OK - DONE - Did you hear the big splash?
sorry for the bad question2 - really, you did answer it when you mentioned the form processor using AJAX/JSON. (that's what I was asking about)
I have some experience with php/mysql - but none with AJAX/JSON.
Are there any functions/tools in DW that can help me get started with form processing using AJAX/JSON? If not are there any mac apps that can help with this?

All the best!
Thanks ST! By nature I'm a marketing person first and not a web person so you would think I would love that term, but it's just the opposite. It's like when people confuse "HTML5" building for App building not realizing the inherent differences between the two.
Just to further the point to the OP, you should definitely focus on understanding the modal windows and effects before you try to mix in the form processing. There's nothing wrong with a page refresh if that's the way you have now and it could be a longer process learning that over implementing the jquery tooltip/modal window.
