  1. There is a post on the forums named "Data Structure and Algorithms" . Give it a search, it should help you a lot. It has links to all relevant algorithms
  2. What do you mean by each and everything? Your language's STL, or anything related to competitive coding, or data structure, or what?
  3. You can either form a team and send invite to other person, or get invited by someone else to form a team. Teams are needed for contests like snackdown etc. For codechef long, cook-off and lunchtime, you dont need a team as its solo.
  4. Rating system works like, lets say you have a rating X. Then it calculates that "What should be your expected rank in this contest?". If you get a rank better than expected rank, ratings increase, else decrease.
