What else do I need to know about moving from an hourly position to a salaried but still non-exempt position?

I am being promoted (yay) to a new position in my company. Right now I am paid hourly and have to have overtime approved by my current boss. I have read enough to know that non-exempt means that you must be paid time and a half for any hours over 40 per week. I want to make sure that I am clear on all of the rules and how most companies handle things. My new boss is new to his position as well and I can't access everything on the HR website until my promotion is effective.
What I do know:
-I am bonus eligible
-Vacation is given by calendar year and I have not used any of 2013's yet. I will have the same amount as I do in my current position.
-Roughly how my benefits will change
What I don't know but plan to ask:
Is overtime allowed? Is it ever required?
What is the payday schedule? (some are 2x monthly and some are every two weeks)
How they want me to handle scheduling (shifts, time off, OT, etc.)
What else should I ask about? I will be having a meeting with someone to go over these things, so I want to be prepared for that. This last one is more of a general question. How do companies usually calculate your check if they do pay twice a month? Is it just always 1/24th of your salary, or does it have anything to do with how many days were in the pay period?
