If I find I need a package from Fedora, I usually go here

http://www.mirror.ac.uk/sites/download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/2/i386/os/Fedora/RPMS/

You can also use up2date, yum and apt if you have set them up to automate 
fetching dependencies.  I use yum myself which is great.

Yes, and for -q as any user also.

Dunno.  If you use apt, you can use synaptic as a frontend.  Don't know about 
rpm.  But I think you are overreacting, rpm is nice to use on the commandline 
once you just know a few switches.
