You can set up a private testnet according to these instructions

Change the folder names according to your preference, and remove the --testnet flag to use mainnet network parameters.

  • Correct. More specifically, a private network (whether testnet, stagenet or mainnet) uses the --add-exclusive-node option on the nodes. That's what makes it private.

  • Just remove --testnet and it will default to mainnet. Your other questions are out of scope, as well as huge challenging technical undertakings. Why not reach out to us on IRC to work on some Monero issues to get to know the currency and community :)
