1. You could let * SOMETHING become a section.  See "The sectioning
structure" (it seems you already tried, though).  This would allow you
to get around your problem using usual org latex classes.
Cf. Robert's solution.

2. Presumably, the best way way to do this is to make a derived back-end,
see

http://orgmode.org/worg/dev/org-export-reference.html

What you first need to think about is how you want your Org files to
look.

E.g.:

* question 1
A paragraph describing how the students should answer the following
questions.
1. A multi-line question
2. Another multi-line question?

Then you have to define the appropriate functions for your backend.
It won't be many since it inherits everything from the LaTeX class.

Of ocurse whether this is necessary depends on how much you want to
'specialize' the org layout compared to the 'usual' LaTeX org-layout.
