No, they don't have to be child accounts.  They should be able to do anything that the primary account can do.  I know that they can add and use MS point cards to download anything on the marketplace.  I don't know if they can have individual credit cards assigned to each account because I have never tried to do that.

1. They will be considered child accounts. They cannot download demos that are M rated.

2. They will be able to use features on Live.

3. If I remember correctly the ONLY account that can add points or make cc purchases is the primary account. However, the primary can give points to the other three as allowance and they can make their points purchases for content that way.

on a family plan, you are able to make it so the child accounts will be able to download anything that is M rated. However, demos are unrated so by default the child accounts will not be able to play them.
