from AccessControl import getSecurityManager
user = getSecurityManager().getUser()

And yes, this can be made to work in a testing environment.  You'll always
get the Anonymous User from within a test, however.

For an example of a way to *set* the user with the same facility, see
CoreSessionTracking's SessionDataManager.EventWrapper.__call__ method.

Dunno.  It's not really possible if you depend on database operations.  This
is why it's important to factor your products into bits testable outside of
the Zope framework.
