Followers have added you as a friend.  Once you add them back as a friend, then they are a friend instead of a follower.  Followers can follow your activity on the Xbox.  Just like Twitter has followers for people's accounts.

Not sure about that.  All of my 360 friends are listed as friends and not followers...  Maybe see if you can send them a request.
