In-depth explanation of Magento's Store / Store View / Website layers?

Could anybody point me towards a good technical explanation of Magento's Store Views/Websites system on a programming level?

I am considering a customization of the system, but am not yet sure which one of these levels to use.

Magento: different currency for different store view
Programming Languages

I have several store views (Germany, Ireland, Switzerland...) all which are supposed to have different currencies.
However, when I set the correct default currency on store view level in the configuration - nothing happens.
I hope someone is familiar with this problem. Thanks!

If anyone could tell me where to find the line in the code which prints out the currency symbol in the product page, it would also help me!

I found list.phtml in /app/design/frontend/default/THEME/template/catalog/product
there the following line can be found:

<?php echo $this->getPriceHtml($_product, true) ?&g
Magento: login required to view/order for one store/website
Programming Languages

Given a magento installation with multiple existing websites and stores, is it possible to create a new website/store that requires users to login before they can order a product? Optional visitors should not be able to see the products as well. I prefer a module or extension that works out of the box, and has a setting in the admin to require login. This may be a paid module.

I found the following extension from Mageparts.

This is only useful if new user accounts have to be approved by us. I found another extension by mageparts:

Magento new store view URL
Programming Languages

I was advised by an SEO specialist that I should add a /aus/ sub-folder to my Magento installation for geo-target specific purposes.

So what I am trying to achieve is to add the same version of my store in a /aus/ sub-folder.

So basically that it would look something like this: <- my current store <- for geo-targeting specific purposes

I do not want to run the /aus/ version on a separate installation or separate language, basically it should just add /aus/ to my current store and replicate all links there.

Magento. Redirect to specific store view
Programming Languages

We have multi-website(5) multi-store-view(13) shop.

What we need is that only 3 store view from 1 shop are allowed to checkout. Therefore the problem is how to redirect users from other shops to the same products on specified store view.

For example user watches product on mk_nn_eng and click @Button@, after that he is redirected to mu_aa_ENG AND sees the same product, he was observing but on specified store view.

How to perform such redirect?
