IIRC, that's SHIFT+/ and SHIFT+! (well, depends on your keymap).
Anyways, I think I said this several times already: The idea is not to
clone ROX. In the end, it should be easy to use (intuitive for the
average user, not necessarily intuitive for a RiscOS user) and fast. So
don't expect too many exotic ROX-features in Thunar. There's CTRL+L to
specify paths directly (autocompletion is missing right now, but it'll
be there when its released), and you can use several ways to tell Thunar
about applications you want to be able to run (the easiest is probably
to just use the thunar-uca plugin).

Not yet, but yes (well, it actually depends on the volume manager
implementation for the specific platform).
