You can yes.

Grab the Netflix app from Google Play.

Only thing I would be cautious of is the data limit caps that Straight Talk has in place. Those caps are rumored to be 100mb per day/2GB per month.

Straight Talk reserves the right to throttle your speed/turn off your service for continued "abuse" of their network.

Give their terms of service a read on the website for more information.

Yes you can. You just have to call your phone provider and they will transfer your number ;)

answer 2
Yes you can.

If you are on another provider besides Straight Talk, you will want to call them to get your account number and pin.

Go to the ST website, and choose activation. Click "transfer number from another company" and enter required information.

If you are currently a ST customer, choose the appropriate button under activation.

After all the activation steps are completed you will normally have a full functioning phone in an hour or two.

No it does not have a specific button for that. What you can do is when you don't want to answer a call, simply slide the red button to the left and it will send the call to your voicemail.

There are call block apps on Google Play that you can use.
