Most of your questions would be answered with a cursory inspection of the Glassfish docs.

If you don't need what it has to offer (it's a full JEE container) the additional complexity may not be worth it.

You can download a PDF paper entitled "Learning Glassfish for Tomcat Users" from this site.

Note that for the upcoming Servlet 3.0 API, Glassfish is the reference implementation, not Tomcat.
