But LyX really isn't a front end for LaTeX. LyX is a document
processor that can both import and export LaTeX. That is, you
don't create a document in LyX by entering LaTeX code into the
window opens when you select File->New.

I can answer some of your questions from the perspective of
LaTeX which I use but not LyX.
>1) What is the best way to export graphics from Mathematica?
I generally use PDF. But I've obtained good results with both
EPS and PDF
>2) How do I export the equations from Mathematica?
I generally use TeXForm and simply copy and paste the result
into the document I am working on. For example doing:
In[3]:= f == Sum[Subscript[x, n], {n, k}] // TeXForm
Out[3]//TeXForm=
f=\sum _n^k x_n
gives a result that can be pasted directly into LaTeX document.

Given what LyX is, I doubt this is easily doable if at all.
