1. Idiots are always assuming everybody in the industry has to be a programmer. It helps, but it's not a requirement. You should look into level design (FAQ 69).
1. Look into level design, see if you can use Game Maker (FAQ 56) or modding tools.
4. It's a good thing if you want to do that. There's a growing movement deprecating GDDs, but every game designer still needs to be able to write one.
