--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
You mean this?
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Mark the region and hit `C-c M-m'.

Depends on what you want to run in the hook.  If the code modifies
variables needed for generating the headers, then something early like
`message-setup-hook' is needed.  But `message-mode-hook' is appropriate
most of the time.

Do you use the agent?  It can do so.  It's not extremely fast, but for
me it's ok, and I read a lot of groups.

Customize `gnus-summary-line-format'.

Not sure, but maybe you could do so with a kiboze group where you put
all articles with message-ids from you.

The faces can be set with `gnus-summary-line-format', too.
