1)  The .NET runtime, a 23 MB download, is required, I think.

2)  You cannot convert the program automatically...you will have to port it manually.  I think I remember hearing once that you can RUN  VB.NET code from within C#.

3)  .NET does have a install and deployment ability but it is not very user friendly in my experience.  Depending on the complexity you can just setup a batch file that does an XCOPY for you.  If you have the money go with a more professional deployment application like InstallShield.
