The emacs wiki has some infos about gnus customization.
Highlighting the current line in summary buffer is explained there:
Have a look at the CategoryGnus page on the wiki for more.

You don't need gnus to send a message from emacs. Just type C-x m.
Some customization is needed however if you want to add attachments,
or specify your user-name and server. Have a look at the following page.

It's a bit strange, I thought that ~/News was the default.
The default directory in which articles are saved is contained
in the variable gnus-article-save-directory. 

It can be specified depending on the group you are browsing, e.g.

(setq gnus-parameters '(("imap.*\\|nndoc.*" 
      (gnus-article-save-directory "~/my-saved-mail"))))

You can also set in which file you want the article to be saved,
depending on the content of the mail, e.g.

(setq gnus-split-methods '(
        ("^From:.*\\(alex\\|john\\)" "family")
        ("^Subject:.*\\(project\\|committee\\)" "work")))

You then will be offered to save mails sent by john in ~/my-saved-mail/family.
