Honestly, it's up to you. Do whatever works. There are no Apple guidelines that I know of (and there are on most things) and any approach is valid. Your basically have two options: Use the same image in all cases. If your image is always going to cover the entire screen there will only be a small portion of the image visible on all devices as the edges ...

Not really. But it depends. If you are working with vectors then you can resize with no problem but if you are working with raster images then you are out of luck. See: What are the differences between vector graphics and raster graphics? If you are working with raster images, changing the resolution (PPI) and keeping the physical dimensions the same will ...

Sounds like you're confusing dimensions with resolution. Go for the dimensions as close to 27x40 as possible (using the online calculator that joojaa mentioned to convert inches --> pixels). When choosing resolution for printing, 300 is best for high-res graphics or fine details, but if it's okay to lose some detail you can go with 150.

Yes you can. The text typed in Illustrator is vector-based. Just save your file as PDF, and make sure the font is included in the "Save Adobe PDF"-dialog when you save the file. There should be no need to outline the text as long as the font is allowed to be included in the PDF file. If you for some reason must make an EPS-file, you should outline the ...

It depends on how close you expect the viewer to stand, as vision is based on angular frequency. If your image has a certain size and you need to print it at some size then there is not much you can do about the resolution. 150 PPI is usually quite acceptable for items you view at a distance. Most human sized outdoor commercials are at that kind of ...

Yes. Just make sure you outline your type first. Right-click, Create outlines To add to Vicki's comment, I usually save my "working" documents (with editable text) as .ai files. I then save my outlined, print-ready designs as .eps or .pdf files, depending on which the printer asks for. That way, you can always go back and change something if need be, ...

Pretty much, yes. But keep in mind there may be PPI requirements. If said printer requires a file at 100% at exactly 300PPI and your image isn't exactly 300PPI at your required size then you will have to resample your image. Most printers will have a minimum not exact PPI requirement, but it is a possibility and I have seen requirements within a range (say ...
