1. The region setting is in the project settings. (Button is under the Disc tab.)
2. No. DVD spec requires that one button in a menu be selected at all times. You can make a "hidden" button to start out with. A button that has no visible layers or subpicture highlights, no link, and using manual button routing you can make it so that the user can't get back to the button.
3. No. You'll need to re-encode your video assets as NTSC, and start a new NTSC project. You can borrow the same menus from your PAL project (they're inside the project folder), but they'll need some slight alteration to match NTSC frame size and all the links and timelines will need to be recreated.

It can't be avoided, but you can change the default button by selecting the button of your choice; right-clicking on it and choosing "Set As Default". I have a different way of changing the button. Instead of dragging the mpeg asset out onto the menu, I create a timeline by clicking on the timeline button at the bottom of the project window. After the timeline has been created, I can then drag the button of my choice from the library onto the menu and manually link it to the mpeg timeline by right-clicking on it and choosing "Link To".
