3) Use a turkey baster. They are like 2 bucks from Walmart. There's a good amount of old oil in that housing.
For #2, just want to add that I fill the housing 1/2 back up fresh oil before putting the filter into the housing, then pour oil all over the filter til the housing is almost full before I put the cap back on. This seem to help a bit on that first start after the oil change.
