Just open DNS management console (dnsmgmt.msc), expand Forward Lookup Zones, select your DNS zone and in the right pane (after records will be displayed), click right mouse button and choose "New host (A)". You need only to type name for that records and IP address for it.

Nothing - apart from having registered your domain and entered into an agreement with a provider I suppose.

You are talking about DNS and AD 2008. In that case for YOUR domain computers you should never need to. You have set up integrated DNS with AD yes?

An explination of what you want to do and why would help.
