that's a 4 pin molex socket
your power supply should have plenty of molex connectors

yes.

all it's there fore is to provide extra power to the motherboard, since the ATX connector does not always provide enough. though it's usually only an issue if you run SLI

I don't run one to it. I know people chose to, and if you are a hardcore overclocker you may chose, but until then it isn't really needed (unless you use SLI.)

Don't ruin your cable management over it, but if you have one there you might as well.

check your motherboard manual
hddled = hard drive LED (needs to be plugged in the right way. if it doesn't work, turn it around)
reset = reset button
pwr sw = power switch
p led = power LED (positive and negative - LED's only let current flow one way)

the motherboard should also have acronyms written next to the pins on the board (near the PCI slots and such)
