1. Does Bella really understand all that she will give up in becoming immortal? Do you think her understanding is limited by her age, life experience, or something else?
Bella is fairly intuitive and an old soul, so once she had been through everything in NM and EC, I think she finally understood what she would be giving up. This is why she stalls again at the start of BD, because she is scared what part of her she will leave behind. Having said that, her intuitiveness is what makes her sure that eventually, being a vampire is what she really wants.
2. What do you think Emmett and Jasper were going to do for Edward's bachelor party? Was Jasper telling the truth?
Yeah, Jasper was telling the truth, they went hunting. However, like some one mentioned I think the conversation may have been a little different to the usual hunting dialogue! lol
3. Tanya made a play for Edward long ago. We don't know much about Tanya, but we know quite a bit about Edward. Why do you think he turned her down?
In Midnight Sun we see how normal minds hold no interest for him. Tanya is a vampire, but her mind is still fairly selfish, he sees her desires out right and probably derives that most are driven by lust, some thing that is not at the top of Edwards agenda. Bella is like no other, in the fact that he can't read her, so therefore he has the chance to fall in love "normally". He finds out that she is a very unselfish person by getting to know her gradually and not by reading her mind. I think it's the unselfishness and pureness to her that he falls for initially.
4. About Immortal children. At what age or developmental stage would the Volturi allow them to be created? A two-year-old usually understands the word no, but evidently that wasn't enough. How would they determine if the child could "keep the secret"? What would the determining test(s) be?
