Re your 1): you give the stylesheet a name when you use the Install button.

Nothing I know would prohibit renaming any (non-OS system) file in the 
Finder, assuming you reset any permissions, etc., that might otherwise 
inhibit doing that. But then Mathematica would not still list it on the 
Style Sheet menu.
