It does sound as though you planted the garlic rather deep.  I plant my garlic with the top of the clove about 2 inches below the surface, certainly not deep enough for little cloves 4 inches above the main bulb.

I'm sure they are of no importance, but I wouldn't plant them for next year, as only the biggest cloves should be planted in the Autumn for next year.

Yes they are poisonous.  Take it as a good opportunity to teach the children not to touch anything in the garden however pretty.  Please do not destroy them, they are part of the Natural World.  There are many, many things around us every day that are hazardous, but in the main cause no harm.

Because they haven't been fertilized.  Make sure the ventilation is good so the insects can get at them, although they are usually self-fertile, sometimes they need a hand.

You're OK, it will ripen eventually.

There is a very closely related plant the tomatillo which produces fruit for salsas.  This will never ripen to orange, suitable for dessert.  Tony Williams doesn't say exactly which variety he's growing.

Yes, but it isn't a mint.  Mint is Mentha ...
