> 1) How do I notate a triplet?
Additionaly to what Richard says I prefer to insert a single note value of the 
complete duration first and then split it to a triplet and shift the members up 
and down. This is a few klicks more, but its also no fiddling with the small 
tuplet markers.

This can be done via Notes/Rest -> Split Chord. You get a field where you can 
insert a number. In composer mode you can do it the keyboard way by pressing 
Alt+s. Denemo remains silent afterwards for now (I hope we will get a 
help-toolbar in the future), it expects a number, in your case 3.
If you press Space after Alt+s you get the help dialog again.
If you press Enter after Alt+s you map the number keys permanently to 
splitting. [3] will directly split into a tuplet. Press [Esc] to return to 
normal note insert.

This key-system is also in place for Fingerings [alt+f], Voice-Presets [alt+v] 
and in the next version (or current pre-installer/GIT) for common 
time-signatures [alt+t] and barlines [alt+b].
