Expanding on 1, that's not exactly my cup of tea (might be yours!),
but joining a SIG/LUG (which you have, because you are here) and
participating (which you have because you posted) might accomplish the
same thing on a smaller scale (which may be your target audience
anyway).  Don't be afraid to ask questions, and don't be afraid to
attempt to help.  Some of us on bad days on low caffeine might do a
better or more thorough job, but the person who asked will remember
you tried, especially if you put them on the right track and they
figure it out themselves.

As to 2, there's quite a bit riding on that decision, I would
recommend only doing so if you find one that you are truly passionate
about, and you can ride the economics.
