You'd better to compile hostapd from sources (trunk or release candidate)
if you want to use n-mode. As I remember 0.7.3 works bad in N.

Yes.

Yes.

Yes.

n-mode works on top of b/g-mode, so you can not enable just "n". Also you
can play with ht_capab parameter, for ex to use HT40 mode.
I'm currently use
ht_capab=[HT40-][SHORT-GI-40][DSSS_CCK-40][TX-STBC][RX-STBC1] with TP-Link
TL-WN851N (ar9xxx chip).

Can't give an answer to you about b-mode, it's a bit old and I never used
it.
