You only check out once. Then do an update once in a while (quite fast).
You can check out a part (subfolder) of the repository if you wish.

By using "Show edited files". Also, attempting to Edit a file already
Edit'ed by another developer will fail.

Yes. If you use TortoiseCVS, it will happen automatically.
