Default Help with ECFMG registration!!

Hello guys,
I have seen you helping other IMGs, so I want you to help me too.
I am an IMG, graduated this year in March, and want to apply for Step 1. I have a few doubts:

1- My last name on my passport and my degree certificate are different(on my passport, its the expanded name, and on the degree, it is given as an initial). So while registering for USMLE ID, how do I fill up the last name section?

2- Regarding the various ECFMG forms, I understand that once i register in IWA, i will get the Form 186 after paying the 65$ fee?

3- After that, i should take a hard copies of Form 186, Forms 344,345,187 and get it signed by my College dean and send it to ECFMG?

4- Will I get the scheduling permit for the Step 1 only after ECFMG finishes verification of my details or can I apply after sending those forms to ECFMG?

Thanking you in advance, please guide me!
