With a file:/// url, you access the repository directly. If you want
your repository served via apache, you would have to use a http:// or
https:// url to access the repository.
You really should read our docs, especially chapter 3 (setting up a server).

Yes, that's how Subversion names the commands. You *import* your files
into the repository, then you *checkout* those files again to get a
local working copy. *Export* means you get the files from either your
repository and export them to some location, without having them
assigned to the repository (i.e., the .svn folder is missing), or you
export a versioned working copy to a fresh location where the files are
not versioned anymore.
But this too is explained in full in our docs.
