If you like. I usually do. Depends whether you want them to land in melee or not? You can throw them at a wall they still work

Yes. Magical figurines (but NOT statues) will turn into the monster they represent and become your loyal pet. If you see a figurine of a powerful high-level monster in the black market, it might be worth buying.
Make sure to get a capture ball from the general store too if you plan on making use of powerful allies like this. That way when you leave the dungeon or travel across the overworld you can bring your buddy along in the capture ball instead of abandoning it.

If you really want monsters to fight for you, try playing Q. (Hehehe. It's ridiculously difficult.)

1 - yes, definitely read them at deeper levels. The deeper the better

2 - yes, as far as know (Artifact creation scrolls are exceedingly rare these days)
