Would anyone of you be kind enough to take the time to fill in the blanks
and replace the question marks?

Installing ooRexx:

What folders does it create?

Can I name them myself?

Yes

Can I place them elsewhere than the defaults?

Yes
 
Does it hijack any of my existing associations?

It depends on what constitutes "hijacked".  It does define some file associations and does take over any standard file associations. 
 
What can the file extension(s) [file type(s)] be?
>> user defined ??

Anything. 
 
Can I name them anything I want, or do I have to use specific FTs?

Any can be used
 
None of this stuff is anywhere that I can find.

There is no   read.me   file that I can download without going through THE download.

A FAQ for (Microsoft) Windows would be nice.

Can ooRexx and other REXXes play well together?

The only versions available for download are the install versions.  It is possible to copy the files and run with it, but frankly, that's harder than just installing it. 
 
What (or which) Microsoft Windows versions are supported?
>> That's in readme.pdf (and was recently discussed
Can I run  ooRexx in a stand-alone DOS system  (i.e.,  no windows AT ALL),
  like I can with Regina, PC/REXX and others?
>> I Guess NO

No, DOS is not one of the platforms we support.  

As for me I prais the ease of installation on Windows, bu then I am happy with ooRexx only :-)

Thank y'aa in advance
