The reason for using the devscripts commands debuild and dch should be
obvious: less and simpler commands.
There are several reasons for the longer version number:
~ * If next official Debian package is an NMU (done an hour ago but
waiting to be released, so older than yours) it is silently ignored
~ * you can later on scan dpkg for version numbers containing "private"
to see how much local mess you have done
~ * You have room to make another rebuild

No (if you ask me - I can naturally only speak for myself).
