Yes that's correct.
Access to the inside pad's adjuster could be tricky having to go through the spokes.
Yes but only slightly
Well, you could just take the wheel out, but it'd be more convenient if you didn't have to.
You could but it'd be far more tricky as you've nothing to adjust the pad to without the rotor in place.
I don't know but presume that the BB7s, having only one moving pad, don't have this.
BB7's have adjusters on both pads.
The trick is to get the rotor central in the caliper slot on initial set up by winding in both pads(Avid recommend 1/3 to 2/3 but I find 5/50 better)equally until they grip the rotor,with the caliper fixing bolts backed off enough to let the caliper rock on the convex concave washers.This stage squares up the mounting of the caliper.
Tighten the fixing bolts.
Back off both pads then adjust up equally so they're juusstt not rubbing the rotor,then if you like me like a little more free lever travel back off the outer pad a click or two,job done.
