It lets you know what resources the map needs.

The textures can be stored inside the map or in a wad, it doesn't make a difference.

Use the player_weaponstrip point entity.

You can use the item_heathkit point entity.

No other entities that can heal players other than healthkits?

That's what the res file is for, unfortunately most cs maps don't have res files, so you have to manually find each texture.

1. The .res-file is a list of custom files used by a map(eg. sound, textures, models, skies etc.). When a player connects to a server it will automatically download the files listed in the .res-file so the player can play your custom map. Read more: http://www.telefragged.com/wally/tutorials/res_files.html

2. Yes, textures can be embedded inside the .bsp-file. Reason for people not doing it: they don't know how to do it, they just forgot it or they don't give a fuck.

3. game_player_equip

5. Maybe a bug in textract? Also remember that not all textures de_dust2 uses are embedded in the bsp-file, it also uses some textures from cs_dust.wad and halflife.wad I believe.
QUACK! QUACK!

If we use the player_weaponstrip point entity, players won't have any weapons?

Depends on what you are trying to do. If you want to strip both teams of their weapons it's easier to just use the game_player_equip. If you only want to strip a specific team of their weapons you have to use the player_weaponstrip in combination with trigger_multiple.
QUACK! QUACK!
