#1. I'll leave that question to someone who isn't on the After Effects team, since my answer will be biased. This page gives an idea, though.
#2. After Effects has a lot of features, but it's mostly known for its motion graphics, compositing, and visual effects features. See this page.
#3. A lot. A huge number. If you have a specific question about whether After Effects can work with a specific program, just ask. Even better, do a search of your own, like this search for how After Effects works with Cinema 4D.
#4. It's easy if you begin at the beginning. It's hard if you try to start in the middle. Start here to learn After Effects.
