As you can see from the screenshot below, the wording says, "When the messages arrives, and". This means your rules only apply to new messages. Existing messages, like those in ...

You can't, unless it is for e-mail attachments you are sending.

Free Windows Live Hotmail accounts become inactive if you don't sign in for more than 270 days or within the first 10 days after signing up for an account.

A simple workaround would be to temporarily move all of your deleted messages to a new folder ("Zombies") and search within that. Then, when you're done with whatever you're moving about, just delete the folder, which will (once again) delete all of the messages within it.
Since Hotmail has moved to Outlook.com, the new way to check your rules is as follows:

Microsoft now no longer restricts password length for the Windows Live accounts unless you want to sign in to Xbox Live on the Xbox 360:
I successfully set a 32 character password with a password manager, and signing in to Windows Live does not work unless I enter the full password, so it seems they are not limiting to the first 16 characters anymore.

Regarding the contacts - you should export all your contacts to a .csv file. Under correction, you should be able to do this by going to options, customize contacts and then export contacts.
Then in Gmail you should go to contacts and "import" contacts. I am not entirely sure about the calender entries, but I've successfully migrated contacts in the past ...
The problem with the threads provided in the question is that they are outdated. Gmail currently does not allow you to access your other gmail account through SMTP.

The screen you are seeing is controlled by a Manifest stored on Microsoft's servers. You cannot specifically control it per se.
