1. Easiest: My gut reaction would be Carlisle. He's well-read, been around for a while, could possibly have a common ground with Jasper in history (as in, their interest in it). Esme is also a possibility, depending on whether or not you think he'd appreciate the motherly nature she exudes.
Hardest, I will say Emmett. Purely because Emmett's normally jolly demeanor would go against Jasper's very being- why is this guy having an easier time than he is (at abstaining) and being all happy all the time?
2. I imagine he would have attempted to start the moment they joined the Cullens. As to whether he's been able to successfully stay on the wagon since then, that's debatable. Though with both Alice and Edward around, I'm fairly certain the chances of a slip-up are rather slim.
3. Probably amazement, at first, seeing her integrate so well with them. Perhaps a bit of jealousy, partly because she's able to fit in and he doesn't quite get there, and partly for seeing her establish other relationships (with Edward most likely)- until he understands it's not romantic, at least.

I think Jasper, however, sees Bella's change as the only way to ensure happiness and safety for his family and his wife. I truly think he will do almost anything to protect them (especially Alice, I'm quite sure that the whole Volturi incident changed quite a few things for him -- at least that's the way I'm writing it). I have no doubt that Jasper understands what Edward did not, that Bella cannot live without being his mate. I'm pretty sure he's tired of all the Eddie-angst anyway and is wanting a resolution to the whole situation.
Esme echo wrote: I'm also interested in your thoughts concerning why Jasper seemed "more central to the family picture than usual" (BD p. 749) at the end of Breaking Dawn. Bella had been a vampire for about three months, I think, then she noticed a change in Jasper after the battle with the Volturi didn't happen. Why do you suppose Jasper was suddenly more central to the family?
