You possibly need to work in a higher resolution. If you set up your file to print/view at, say, 72 dpi (standard Internet image resolution), your text is going to be fuzzy for print work. Try working at a much higher resolution. This means your font size will be bigger and you'll view your work at less than 100%, but you'll have crisper edges to your ...

Yes. The similar tools are surface blur, which is mostly same and then there is the smart blur. For reference see: Photoshop Filter Effects Reference

What is probably going on is that the target image is not in RGB mod, rather in indexed mode. (It will be so if its file in disk is indexed, like a GIF or an indexed PNG). GIMP does not represent semi-transparency levels on indexed images - change the target image to RGB mode in image->mode->RGB before pasting your contents there. If afterwards ...

The GIF specifications do not allow semi-transparency which would be needed for anti-aliasing a border to the transparent background. To overcome this you may generate a fake semi-transparency by dithering the output on exporting to GIF (see my answer to this question: GIF with transparency output not as expected in GIMP). The resulting image qualtity may ...

You do not write which way you export the image, but this is important. It needs to be exported to an image format that supports saving the transparency information to the file. Otherwise, the export process has to find a way to save the image without the transparency - asking you, or just pretending the background is white, for example. The most ...

You can use the Pixelize feature, Filters > Blur > Pixelize It works better on an photograph because it has more colors to pull from but you can repeat this effect to your liking to create more colors from its previously created or 'pixelized' colors.

This operation in Image Processing is called aplication of a Convolution Matrix - in GIMP, there is a filter that allows you to do exactly this, experimenting with various weights for each neighboring pixel - just check it under Filters->Generic->Convolution Matrix (if your objective is specifically the average, it is possible it is the operation ...

By default, GIMP can export to the .MNG file format - which is a somewhat complicated format designed to replace animated GIFs in the past, but never caught on due too being too complex. (GIMP itself implements a rather restricted subset of it). Since you asked "what animation formats GIMP support", it can also export to ".flic" - "Autodesk FLIC Animation" ...
