The "new rectangle-mark-mode" just provides a different UI to the
same old rectangle commands available since forever.  So yes for the
above: put point before the first "c" then C-x SPC then move cursor to
after the last "a" and finally C-w.

Yup: put point before "1" and hit C-y.

No, this is not a rectangle.

Yes, that's the one you should get.

And yes, the first question's answer would have been "no" if the longest
line was the "bbb" one.
