See clip from Attorney Rajiv S. Khanna's conference call video that addresses this question.
1. Under the current laws, self-application seems not to be an option for you.
2. There are only three categories for employment-based self-application: EB-1A (Extraordinary ability alien), National Interest Waiver and EB-5, investment. There is no category I can think of under which you may qualify for self-application (without an employer's help).

Yes, of course. Especially when you are going through a regional investment center.
I do not see why not. But check with a CPA about gift tax.
We practice US laws so I have no idea about RBI permissions. Safety of money is not guaranteed in any of the trusts that I know of. After all, this is an investment, not a fixed deposit or a CD in a bank. For businessmen with established businesses, L-1A and then EB1 is usually the better option.
