1.) Yes and No. Since the Macintosh has no default screen saver, all you have to do is that your screensaver will be executed at startup (a own control panel, ...)
2.) The preferences directory in the system folder are a little bit equivalent to the registry.

3.) There is no standard screen saver so there are no settings.

4.) YES.

And you told the same as I for 1 and 2)
1.) No standard screensaver. Own application
