    No idea on the first one.

    You do not need to root to install swype. Download it from the market (if it's even available there yet) or search around the forums and you can find the apk.

    Download the apk file from the post on the XDA forums and install it on your phone.

    You can email it to yourself, check your email from the BROWSER, download it from your email and then click on the finished file to install it.

    OR

    You can drop it on your SD card and use "Apps Installer" to install it.

    OR

    There are other ways to do this, but these are the two I use.

    But to answer the question... An app written for Android 1.5 is supposed to run on version 1.5 or later versions of Android.

    If a version number x.y is given it is typically safe to read it as Android x.y or higher.

    Never used best keyboard so not sure what all it does/changes.

    Pretty sure unchecked though. Try it and see.

    Swype is it's own keyboard, and every keyboard works on it's own separately. If you install swype, you've installed swype. Just go to locale and text, click the check box, then go to a field where you can input text and just put your finger down to do a long press and wait for the menu to come up, then go to 'input method' and click swype or whatever you want.
