That is correct.

Yes you do.  Note that this will probably only work if you are root.  So, the usual way to do this would be to put it in a script and run the script as root.

Depends which version of myth you are running.  If you are using head post http://svn.mythtv.org/trac/changeset/12374 then yes.  Otherwise you can only use nvram-wakeup in mythwelcome since it is partially hardcoded.
