1.- They are intended to be use with the AutoCAD of the same version in the SDK name, the differences are in some cases are documented in the docs of each SDK (arxmgd.chm). 

2.- Just impossible, each version of AutoCAD requires the proper SDK *and* .NET Framework, and in some casesa specific VS version.

3.- You need to understand the relation between VS debuger and AutoCAD process. The first thing is to setup an AutoCAD project in VS: Project setup . In order to debug, put some breakpoints (Breakpoints) in VS and press F5


My advice: Start learning some .NET language c# or VB: Begin .NET pdf

check out the "My First AutoCAD Plug-in" and the "self-paced AutoCAD.NET training labs for AutoCAD" over at the Autodesk Developer Network Autocad page. It provides some step by step documents, videos and sample code.
