There is a book called "Maximum Boost" by Corky Bell. It answers all those questions and then some pertaining to turbo chargers and theories behind them. It would take a senior thesis-length post to answer all those questions. It's a good book and is easy reading.

Barnes and Noble has it in stock right now for $27.95.
