To answer the questions that I was able to identify:

* The "Extension Builder" tool is used for compiling and packaging 
extensions.

* Extensions may be either "libraries" (which add handlers to the 
LiveCode message path), "widgets" (which add controls to the LiveCode 
toolbox) or "modules" (which are used by other extensions).

* Using an external text editor is the recommended and currently only 
way to edit LiveCode Builder code.  I recommend using the Atom editor 
<https://atom.io/>, with my "language-livecode" Atom extension to add 
syntax highlighting and autocompletion for LiveCode Builder source files 
<https://atom.io/packages/language-livecode>.

* For a detailed, step-by-step tutorial for creating a widget, see this 
blog post: <https://livecode.com/write-a-widget-in-8-steps/>.
