I have remained with Vidalia and installed it as standalone in order

watching circuits to have an understanding about how they work. I have
some basic questions, please and thank you in advance:

For 1), read https://www.torproject.org/docs/faq.html.en#EntryGuards and the question below that about path 'refresh'.

Your point in 2) that AOL would be able to detect you're using an anonymizer is moot, as they can simply check against the public exit-node database that you're using Tor.

Also, read about IsolateDest* here: https://www.torproject.org/docs/tor-manual.html.en . All those options are disabled by default.

3) No, it was introduced quite recently into mainline Tor if I recall correctly; some months ago.

4) No, there is no maximum lifetime. Not only for hidden services; all TCP sessions persist until they are closed or broken.
