Yes, a simple "dd" will do.

I don't think so. It requires kernel-level IP configuration support
(which AFAIK is not compiled-in even on some linux distros).
And even then, on the default setup there's nothing preventing domU
from changing it's own IP address. Better use dhcp.

You should ask on opensolaris list to be sure.
