Look on ThemeMarket. IIRC, someone has used it in a similar way before.

There are some docs in the wiki, but there is no single "make you all 
happy doc".
Reading the source and looking at the filesystem is also a way.

Maybe you can use a modified autoadmin security policy.

You can use any tags you want (see WikiBadge, Categories).

Implementing macros is also rather easy.

Although a bit unclear, this sounds like more work.

I guess it should work, if you either use PageEditor class or xmlrpc

Usually, you have to separate public and private stuff onto different 
pages and then protect the page with some ACL.
Or publish the page with some ACL, if you default ACL says "all secret".
