Yes you can, you drag the particle effect button to the timeline/canvas, this will give you a load of dots representing all the particles, from here you can add the effects individually in the top of the right hand frame, when you have the emitter selected.

no problem, and don't forget to put your effect up in the preset library if it looks good

you right click on your preset, the main coloured part, in the timeline and click 'create preset' then after that go to the preset section and click on the 'upload preset button'

You'll need to "export" your preset from the library once you create it, this will package it up ready to be uploaded, then follow the instructions on the website.

Also, there is a Text Tutorial of how to make Fire using the particle engine by Arctik, although it also explains most of the functions of the particle engine which can be applied to other particle creations. It's well worth looking at!
