A few questions about the Kindle 1st gen

Since the Sony PRS-505s are hard to get a hold of now, I'm looking into the refurbished first generation Kindles offered by I live in Canada so I won't be able to use the wireless capability.

From what I understand, I'll be able to drag-and-drop ebooks directly from my computer (a Mac) to the Kindle, via USB?
How are files organized/displayed on the Kindle: in folder format (like the Hanlin) or by title/author/etc (like the Sony models)?
Would I have to use a program like Calibre to convert my html/rtf/pdf files into formats that are recognized by the Kindle (which are txt and...?)?
The dictionary function is built-in and does not rely on wireless access, right?

Thanks, guys!
