Ok, I don't know as much as some dressage peoples on here, but I will try to answer to the best of my eventer ablities!
1. I just really push with my inside leg until I start to feel him go to my outside rein, and then I lightly guide him with my inside rein. On a 20m(I'm asuming that's what they are asking) you only want to see the inside corrner of the eye anyway.
2. I wouldn't worry about it right now, you got enough on your plate getting ready for the show!
4. On my tests they do a transition to the Medium walk, I really get him "marching" and then I just slip my reins out and jiggle them just a bit, and if he gets behind my leg I bump alternating with my legs. Idealy, you want the horse's head to be below the withers and you want the hind foot to overstep where they front hoof was.
Hope I helped alitte!
