I'll take a shot at it :)

Yes this is for autoloads.  I think this is provided for you if you use
the version of org-mode that comes with Emacs.  If you want to use a
newer org-mode from git then you should require org-install so you get
the autoload definitions that go with that version of org-mode.

You're referencing a variable in org-latex.  It probably doesn't get
defined until you have auto-loaded org-latex by using some function
provided by that file.  If you want to use the variable before that I
think you need to require the package to force loading it early.

That depends on what variables you want to use before you load the
corresponding org package I think.

They are?  Not that I'm aware of.  I add require lines for anything I
want to have setup before it's called the first time (not that I restart
emacs all that often but it happens.)  I have requires for the following
org packages in my .emacs

  - (require 'org-install)
  - (require 'org-protocol)
  - (require 'org-crypt)
  - (require 'org-id)
  - (require 'org-latex)
