I'm not an expert here, but:
1. I think you can print the cover letter yourself and then sent it, he doesn't sign it, you do.
2> don't know, but I guess typing is always better
3. address is your school but you (or them) sent it to ecfmg which is your designated us " dean's office"
4. they need originals, no e-mails are allowed
5. One of the first rules is, never sent a LOR from a relative. Not sure about you but I wouldn't do it.
