No, the player will only play as his own captain, as it is with all of Cryptic's current missions.

Again, no. Not all players will have a shuttle, or necessarily any other type of ship you'd want them to "use". The best you could do is in the mission text, tell players to use a shuttle (though there's no way of "forcing" them to use one)

Not sure about this one. I thought all of the ships in the game were available as NPCs. I haven't looked at the full asset list, yet, but I'd be surprised if you couldn't find the ship you wanted to simply use as a motionless "NPC" floating in space.
