Code for Darkness awaits is available in this thread.

In regards to point 3, I have found most people on the Leadwerks forum to be most helpful and generous with there knowledge.

As someone who has been on these forums for years (since Leadwerks 2), I don't remember ever seeing this.  But check out the forums if you want to verify for yourself.  There have been thousands of questions and people help when they can, or sometimes the dev (Josh) does himself, like he did here.

You can create levels with the CSG tools but to create models you will need a modeling program (Blender is one option).

What helped me there is that there are a ton of free models and textures out there.  I can't model complex things or create textures from scratch but I know enough to alter things to how I want and to animate things myself.  It's a nice compromise and not too hard once you know it.
