7 includes .net 3.5.1. Visit Windows Update and you can download and install 4.0 with the various hotfixes/updates/etc.

No, .NET Framework 4.0 is still a separate download. Get it here: Download .NET for: Desktop, Server & Development | Microsoft .NET Framework

You can either download it yourself or go to Windows Update and it will be listed as an optional update.

Net Framework 4.0 comes in in the third or fourth round of Updates after installing Win7 with SP1, and is followed in the next round by any needed Security patches.

Windows Update scans your system to see what's needed. It has never been better.

Go with option 2, the client profile one.
Either version will work fine, actually, but the first one includes developer stuff you won't need unless you plan to write your own .NET code and compile it...
