I only have CC2, and export my FT Pro maps to CC2 on the way to another vector application. I can't answer question 1, but as for question 2, FT pro doesn't do roads, borders cities etc. You can approximate forests by using the Gaia shader but that is basically a matrix of temperature vs. rainfall (and I think altitude too although I can't remember for sure). Or you can make your own shader which will give you colour / texture against those parameters. Much easier and more controllable putting those items in CC3. As for rivers and lakes, you should check out the tutorials posted by Waldronate and others as to how to use FT Pro and Wilbur (free) to make good rivers and lakes. The process is quite involved though, although the instructions in the tutorial are very good.
