The rat's nest color is individually controlled. In the panel, browse nets; 
pick a net and edit it. You can change the color for that one net, or you 
can use a global edit to change it for all nets. I'm not sure what the 
"connection" color setting in the layer color dialog does. Perhaps someone 
else will explain, or perhaps it is like our appendix. It was good for 
something at one time, but life moves on.

You can highlite pads by net using global edits, and you can also select 
all objects in a net using the select button on the Net Browse panel. (The 
panel is on the left when you have the PCB editor open, default position, 
and if the Browse PCB tab has been selected.)

Sure. To enter drag mode, press M D (Move Drag). Neither mode is default,
