Wiki syntax is very simple. PHPWiki consists of PHP files which do all
the hard work; I'm sure it won't take you long before you're familiar

No, they use PHP-based templates which are split into different
subfiles. We can edit the existing menu's (actionbar and navbar) and
create new menu's.

For that, check out the Calendar plugin:

See above. You'll have to adjust your news-centered view to a
page-centered view though.
