on line 20 of http://pastebin.org/38643 there is written
yield chan.basic_consume(queue='po_box', no_ack=True, consumer_tag="testtag"
no_ack=True means you don't want to ack received messages (implicit ack). If
you want to explicitely ack messages set no_ack=False

e) What would be the main difference if using py-amqplib instead of txAMQP?

You would lose the benefit from deferred programming. Twisted (the framework
above which txamqp is written http://www.twistedmatrix.com) allow you to
write asynchronous calls to the amqp server. With pyamqplib you have to
write your own loop to wait for the response, and the react, and then
rewait, and so on.
Twisted does all this for you, and a lot more.
I suggest you to read the introduction to twisted. You can find it here
