Time for Basic Strategy Q's?

Been enjoying some recent threads and was hoping to ask a few q's here as I continue my quest to actually figuring this game out - played the same way for years off and on and have a perfect losing record ;-)

Are staves / wands of confuse, hold, sleep etc monsters useful and do you carry them? I tend to fully ignore as most of what they work on are easy kills, and high level monsters seem to ignore fully? Maybe I'm missing something?

How do you tell the relative power of bows? Inspect on weapons gives you a damage number (I assume an aggregate of blows + dmg per round etc). Bows I can see a +dmg number, but is there a way to tell your effective damage per round?

On character creation, I notice some people seem to roll a lot. I just generally take the first setup and go assuming all equals out in stat gain anyway? Am I giving up an edge here?

Thanks for any insights.
