1)in the below screenshot, is the
SQL Server Network Config &
SQL Native Client 10.0 configuration
referring to 64 bits?

2)SQL Server Network Config->Protocols for MSSQLSERVER has Named Pipes disabled- does it have potential to cause trouble or is this not important?

Named pipes is just another method for clients to communicate with SQL Server.  If all of your clients are connecting via TCP/IP(which I imagine that they are), there is no need for named pipes.

if you use TCPIP exclusively it doesn't realy matter however as client protocol named pipes are enabled you may want to enable it at server level as well:

By the way, here is an article discussing named pipes vs TCP/IP.  It's SQL 2000, but I believe it still applies.
