No. Using custom fields to show attached images is a wrong method. Yes, it is relatively famous, but is wrong. WordPress has a very advanced ways to control post's images. However, saying is not the same than do it, because many times it is some difficult to achieve tha we want in this area. WP Smart Image II simply makes this work a quite more easy to you.
However, WP Smart Image II works with postmeta fields to more complex jobs (as show external images) storing a minimal needed data to make the job.
Noup. This plugins uses all existing post data you have been entered through WordPress Editor. Only creates a little field in options table to save your settings. If you choose to use the editor's widget, one field per post will be created in the _postmeta table (only if you make any configuration throught the widget; otherwise no fields will be created).
Just activate the checkbox for option "Activate editor box" through Settings page. Save your settings.
Absolutely not. Your old settings remain unbroken.
Yes, you can combine parameters without an specific order.
Some parameters may not appear depending of your settings. E.g. a "rel" attribute will not shown in an unlinked image, because "rel" is a property of links. In cases like this, if you set wrong parameters the plugin simply ignore them and works anyway. Another example: if you have a Stric DTD site and if you activate a "target _blank", of course you'll ruin your standard. If you add a fixed ID's to several images or links, you are proceeding in a wrong way.
For a better handling of WPSI II parameters, start from the parameters table, so you can taking a look to available options.
