The "Preferences" window applies to everything in your current workspace. The "Properties" window applies to the selected project only. Settings in the "Properties" window can override settings in the "Preferences" window. Eclipse usually tells you when that happens.

You will have to check for yourself. Both windows have a search field in the upper-left corner that you can use.

Not that I know of.

When an editor has focus, by the way, the current line number should appear somewhere around the lower-right corner of the window. You can also hit Ctrl-L and type a number to jump straight to that line.
