CAT5 or CAT5e. CAT6 is overkill. CAT3 is garbage and unsuitable. For connections between devices, the more flexible stranded wire CAT5e is probably better than the stiffer solid wire. I'm partial to garrish colors, but that has no effect on performance.

No. Fiber optic networking has totally different connectors.

Different vendors use different connectors.
