All these are very basic questionsch have nothing to do with  U-Boot.
I  recommend  to  read some books about Linux in general and embedded
Linux, like Karim Yaghmour's "Building Embedded Linux Systems" and/or
Craig Hollabaugh's "Embedded Linux: Hardware,  Software,  and  Inter-
facing"; also, the DULG has some useful information, see
