Well, the package management system varies depending on what distro you're using. Debian (and derivatives like Ubuntu) use dpkg and apt-get (or aptitude) for package management. I think OpenSuse uses Yast. Fedora I think uses rpm.

A repository is an online collection of software. There are different repo's for different distros. Some are officially supported and some are unofficial (community supported).

1) No idea.
2) No idea.
3) Try google. The first entry on Wikipedia will probably suffice...

Are these homework questions?

Typically people will ignore you for trying to get answers to homework...
