"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Yes, you need an update. The Skype for Business is here from this year and some (error) messages are still saying Lync...

You don't need Office 2013 but the Office integration exists, e.g. saved chats are visible in Office 365 Outlook. Office 365 is just on-line version of Office.

Not the standard update/download but you may either find a partner here: https://products.office.com/en-us/skype-for-business/partners which will help to set everything up

or select the subscription plan here: https://products.office.com/en-us/skype-for-business/compare-plans

All ways require registration at certain point.

If you are using paid Lync 2013 then ask your provider and he should help.
