The four .m files comprise the code which is used to create
ConvertInit.mx when we build a CD-ROM. The instructions set
up your kernel so that it uses the definitions in the .m files
rather than the .mx file.

Yes. They will continue to be updated with time.

The version of the notebook.sty file in the .zip file replaces the one
that sits in
SystemFiles\IncludeFiles\TeX

It _does_ install notebook2e.sty. The file sits in the deeper down
in the directory tree.
SystemFiles\IncludeFiles\TeX\texmf\tex\latex\wolfram
The files that are used with LaTeX 2e sit in a TeX directory standard
tree to make it easier to copy the files to your existing TeX installation.
