Also what is the method of registration if you buy through a PC, not the Neo, regarding DRM? Is it Adobe DE?

This would be my first Purchase.
a.) You can purchase eBooks from B&N. But you need VPN, B&N checks your IP. They only sell to people within the US. But they accept any credit card.
b.) I've bought about 150 eBooks from B&N so far. About 95% of those are PDB, only some are ePUB. As far as I know, you can't tell before purchasing, which format you will get. You can strip ePUB and PDB from DRM. But for PDB I find the results far from being perfect. B&N has their own DRM (user name and credit card number), so you need another tool as usual for stripping DRM.
c.) Use sites like the following for finding your books in the formats you need:
http://inkmesh.com/
http://ebooks.addall.com/
http://ebookprice.info/
