1. Broadsword / straight sabre (or whatever the right word is)-- all the cuts are in the form of moulinets, is that right ? From a very extended engaging guard ?

This Russian treatise uses the term pallasch (Russian: палаш). There is a very good wiki article about it:

As for moulinets, yes all cuts are from a very extended guard, and depicted as moulinets. On the one hand such a cut can be very powerful and decisive, on the other hand it is difficult to see how one could cut the opponent's hand with it, along a huge arc.
It think we discussed molinello cuts in another topic with Chris, and the general consensus was that yes, you can do it safely and effective, but not as direct actions.
