the docs on the wiki relate to v2.0 and not recent releases and when v2.0 was released, sc_trans was preferred. however every DNAS release comes with a copy of documentation that is correct for that specific release. the wiki will be updated by someone, but it's always best to refer to what's provided with the DNAS version that is being used.

only the DNAS and the Source DSP. sc_trans is not, it will not see any updates / bug fixes /etc.

that is only one possible source option. there's many different sources out there.

it depends on the source software being used and what SHOUTcast protocol it is using. generally 2.x sources connect on 'portbase' and 1.x sources connect on 'portbase+1'.

that means it's running fine for how it's been configured. the Flash policy file server aspect is a means to make it possible for better Flash based client players but you generally have to open another port and there's little interest to do such things with the ever growing usage of HTML5 audio based players.

you can leave it blank as there's nothing in the DNAS to specify a username, it's just something that can be provided by a source to indicate a specific DJ.

you just connect the source directly to the DNAS, the same as how the defunct sc_trans did.

run sc_serv.exe /? to see what commands are needed to run it in service mode (or consult the section in the docs provided with the DNAS).
