I have come a long way since I wrote my original post, partly through
private mails partly through guessing and reading in Stephen Wolfram's
"The Mathematica Book 5th Edition". I have now solved my original
problems but of course there's lots of stuff I haven't been through yet.

I'm still waiting for answers from Wolfram as to whether I can update my
Mathematica 5 TE which has been "discontinued and no longer supported".
Otherwise, I'll just use my old TE on my old G4/867 Macintosh running
MacOS X 10.4 'Tiger' [I can then also run Classic apps]. I won't give up
my Snow Leopard on my newer computers and I can wait the 15 months it
will take for me to be able to purchase a Student's Edition. =A390 the
price will then be, rather than =A3195 for a "Home Edition".
