Help queries about J1 visa

I have few questions regarding J-1 research visa!

1) is it particularly advantageous to do research on J-1 visa than on B-1 visa?
2) if i get J-1 visa, is there particular difficulties in getting residency, e.g. can i get J-1 clinical after J-1 research? can i get H1b visa after J-1 research, when i apply for residency? i will take step 3.
3) Do i need to get ECFMG certified to do procedure for J-1 visa?

4) do i get paid with J-1 research visa?

I am thinking to apply for J-1 research visa. Please advice me regarding it. If not personal advice, please somebody direct me to appropriate link. I would be very grateful. Please guys! Sabio and other staff members or any other kind angel who can help me!!
