I have some pretty newbie questions about accepting bitcoin as payment.

I want to create a single point-of-sale, no-frills webpage for order entry.  Enter your address and send payment to this btc address, 'GO'.  I have existing customers so all I want is to streamline the process for them with an online order-form which would send me an email every time a new order comes in.

I'm not a developer.  I have a friend who will help me but he isn't very familiar with bitcoin yet.  So here is what I want to know:

1.  Should I accept payment directly to my wallet?  Or should I use a 3rd party?
2.  Are there any security issues with broadcasting the bitcoin addresses in my wallet to the world?
3.  How do I get my website to update with a new BTC address every time an order comes in? (I'm assuming it's a good idea to use unique addresses for every order, right?)
4.  Is there a decent guide/faq on how to incorporate btc as payment on a website?

Thanks in advance

I've also come across http://www.paysius.com/ recently, which offers similar services as bit-pay. I'm not sure about the differences between them, but I think both are known for being good tools. You should read up on both.
