Firsts, you do not need 10, 20, 30. Just 10 would be enough. You could 
define it like this:

10 = TEXT
10.value (
	<div id="hintergrundbild" style="position:absolute; top:0px;
	left:0px; width:965px; height:600px;
	background: url(/uploads/tx_templavoila/{field:field_image_url})
10.insertData = 1

Notice round brackets: they let value to split for many lines. Very 
helpful :)

No problem. Just make sure it exists.

No :( Currently it is always a copy with number I think.
