Thats a lot more questions than I planned on writing, ha ha. My game isn't really far enough a long to start this, I was just curious about it.

The range depends on the devices, but can easily be 10 meters or more.
I have never done Bluetooth pairing on Android. It wasn't too difficult on either WinCE or on Palm, I don't imagine it being very hard on Android.
You might have better or worse luck with WiFi Direct. Bluetooth is slower than WiFi and pairing is an error-prone manual task.
Check out my book, Game Development with Unity, aimed at beginners who want to build fun games fast.
