The correct choice would be 'revert'. You want to undo an add which
has not yet been committed. 'Delete' is used to remove an item which
is already in the repository.

Yes it should, because you might want to add more files. 'Add' for a
versioned (or newly added) folder will give you a list of files within
that folder which have not yet been added.

Also correct. You can't add anything within a file, you can't delete
an object not yet added to the repository. Use revert instead and all
will be well.
