Install the version that matches your OS, i.e. 32-bit. Let me know if you have any further questions.

Well this depends on what browser your using, if your on 64bit W7, and use a 64bit browser, then install 64bit Java, if your on 64bit W7, but using a standard 32bit browser, then install 32bit Java.

That's fine, and since you mention using IE8 & FF 3.6, they are both 32bit Browsers, so you will only need to install 32bit Java.

Both will work too. Note that Java, like Flash and Shockwave is a security vulnerability so use Secunia PSI to make sure you have the latest version(s).
