1) in the text part of cells the command 

System`Convert`TeXDump`UnicodeCharacters = 
  System`Convert`TeXDump`UnicodeCharacters /. {
      ("ä" -> _) :> ("ä" -> "\"a"),
      ("ü" -> _) :> ("ü" -> "\"u"),
      ("ö" -> _) :> ("ö" -> "\"o"),
      ("Ä" -> _) :> ("Ä" -> "\"A"),
      ("Ü" -> _) :> ("Ü" -> "\"u"),
      ("Ö" -> _) :> ("Ö" -> "\"O")}

will bring you back the "Einheitliche deutsche TeX-Befehle" standard.
with "a for ae ... and you must use \usepackage{german}.

2) since you can only change the mathematical fonts before
   and you should not change the math fonts in a running text the fonts
   are fixed. 
   You may define your own mathversion that use again Computer Modern
   you many manual switch back to Computer Modern text fonts.

   This combination had never been tested because the TeXSave[] command
   designed to create a single document and not the pice of a larger

3) Since the PostScript fonts are by default used with notebook2e.sty
   base text font is times and an PostScript fonts. PostScript don't 
   use ligatures, it has a kerning table. dvips know to reencode the
   to OT1 encoding and combine PostScript letters to ligatures.
   Since it works wit  dvips I assume it is just an nother bub of Yap.
