"After purchasing a new one it usually requires them to be reprogrammed which is a 5 minute job, but the shop will usually charge the minimal of a hour"

I've reprogrammed the TPMS myself....about a 10 minute job.

Yes and I don't like the way they work. I do a walk around before I drive off, so I have this covered.

Yes
Be very careful with these new aluminum valve stems!! They can corrode quickly. The treads can be very weak and break off while checking, filling pressure or even losing/tightening the cap. This can cost hundreds to replace even one. After purchasing a new one it usually requires them to be reprogrammed which is a 5 minute job, but the shop will usually charge the minimal of a hour
