No. The Subversion API ignores the .svn folders itself. You would have
to do some really ugly tricks to actually add such a folder to version
control. And if you do, I'd say it's your own fault ;)

The icon overlays are only drawn for working copies, not for local

That's right. If you want an icon overlay to show you if a file changed
on the repository, TSVN would have to constantly contact the repository.
Imagine this with a "normal" repository available on a server via
internet connection. The slowdown would be _really_ really bad - so bad
actually that nobody would want to use it!

Yes. Either check the root folder of your working copy or a single file.
Multiple files/folders are not supported there (because you can select
files from different repositories, and what should TSVN do then?)

Sure you can. Select multiple files/folders, show the properties, go to
the Subversion tab and set your properties there.
Just remember that there are only those properties shown which are the
_same_ on all the files/folders you've selected. It doesn't show some
'grey' properties - either they all have the same or they aren't shown
at all.
