1. Once you work in programming, yes, you can get involved in design eventually.
2. Read http://www.igda.org/games-game-july-2011
3. I can't advise you there.
4. Read http://www.sloperama.com/advice/lesson15.htm and http://www.sloperama.com/advice/lesson14.htm
5. Read http://www.sloperama.com/advice/lesson20.htm
6. You need a portfolio (a body of work expressing your passion and talent). Read http://www.sloperama.com/advice/lesson12.htm
7. You don't need to know programming to work in table games. For video games, C# is good, and C++, and Python, and Flash... Depends on the platform. Read these:
