You can make any level heading unnumbered in LaTeX by adding a "*" to
the section command, without affecting other headings on the same
level.  You can also specify a different entry to appear in the TOC than
in the document — albeit the purpose is to have a short form of the heading
in the TOC and the full heading in the document, you can actually
specify two totally different strings.

No, LaTeX has \paragraph for that.  LaTeX concerns itself with the
document structure, it has styles to take care about the formatting.

The point of LaTeX is that you don't manually muck with the formatting
at all.  If it looks like a heading, then it was a heading and not a
paragraph that's been formatted like a heading.
