Dear John:
Here are my honest answers to your questions:

1. I am not sure but it is possible. Islam is belief in Allah and Mohammed (pbuh). Quran says obey Allah and obey messenger over 25 times. Quran also says:
YUSUFALI: He who obeys the Messenger, obeys Allah:
YUSUFALI: those who obey Allah and His Messenger will be admitted to Gardens with rivers flowing beneath, to abide therein (for ever) and that will be the supreme achievement.

YUSUFALI: But those who disobey Allah and His Messenger and transgress His limits will be admitted to a Fire, to abide therein: And they shall have a humiliating punishment.

YUSUFALI:When a matter has been decided by Allah and His Messenger, no one has any option about their decision:

2.Yes that is our belief as per quran and hadith. Bukhari hadith (vol 5 bk 58 no.227) describes the whole incident when our prophet (pbuh) , in the middle of the night, was taken on a Buraq to Jersalem and then to heavens to meet Allah and see hell and paradise. (You can read this hadith at usc.edu/msa) . Muslims commemorate this night as "shabeb e barat" and pray and recite quran all night.

3. Yes . That is the belief according to quranic ayas. There are over 25 ayas indicating that. effect.
PICKTHAL: . We only give them rein that they may grow in sinfulness. And theirs will be a shameful doom.
YUSUFALI: Allah guideth not those who reject Faith.
