1. No. Some workarounds: use the 'Consolidate Library' command in Aperture. Or rebuild the Library as Managed with iPhoto Library Manager
2. No. It's a byte by byte copy of the files.
3. Not sure why you have an 'in iPhoto Library' there. That's where you can specify what applications to use as an external editor. It has nothing to do with where the files are stored.
You can set Photoshop (or any image editor) as an external editor in iPhoto. (Preferences -> General -> Edit Photo: Choose from the Drop Down Menu.) This way, when you double click a pic to edit in iPhoto it will open automatically in Photoshop or your Image Editor, and when you save it it's sent back to iPhoto automatically. This is the only way that edits made in another application will be displayed in iPhoto.

Thanks for your answers!
How do I consolidate the library? What does it do exactly? Should I import the new pictures first?

Do you have Aperture? No, don't import anything else until you've done this.

Open the Library in Aperture and then use the File -> Consolidate Originals command. Once that's done quit Aperture and open the Library in iPhoto.
