I'm making videos from screen captures and I'm lost!

I've been tasked with creating YouTube-quality videos using clips generated by the screen capture software applications (Camtasia
and Snapz Pro X
. I have to bring these clips into Adobe Premiere for editing and to add titles and audio. I can't get my head around the various resolutions at play here and how best to match them up, so rather than more rambling narrative let me ask a few direct questions;

1) Should the screen captures be made at the highest screen resolution available or should they be made at the same resolution as the final video sequence I create in Premiere?
2) What if my Premiere sequence is smaller in resolution from a capture? Can I shrink the capture down to fit the space without losing clarity?
3) Can I export videos from Premiere that do not have standard dimensions (640x480, 720x480, etc.)? Can a final video be, say, 1280x712 or something like that and, if so, how and can that video be uploaded to YouTube?
4) Is there better screen capture software out there that I should consider?
5) Is there a really good resource on the web or in print that would walk me through these resolution issues?
6) Is there anything else I should know that I might not know?!?
