I can only answer 1 question at a time, so I am answering question 2.
The measure of a bond's percentage return is referred to as
Discount yield. Discount yield is most frequently used to calculate
the yield on short-term bonds and treasury bills sold at a
discount. Generally, This yield calculation uses a 30-day month and
360-day year to simplify calculations.
Bond Equivalent Yield (BEY) refers to the calculation for restating
semi-annual, quarterly, or monthly discount-bond or note yields
into an annual yield. The most important function of BEY is that it
allows fixed-income securities whose payments are not annual to be
compared with securities with annual yields. This yield calculation
generally uses a 30-day month and 365-day year.
Yield to maturity yield calculation is used for treasury bill quotes.
