As far as the last question is concerned:
Patrick Puhani (2000), The Heckman Correction for Sample Selection and Its
Critique, Journal of Economic Surveys, Volume 14, Issue 1, Page 53-68.
and possibly (I don't have the book at hand right now ... ):
Jeffrey Wooldridge (2001), Econometric Analysis of Cross Section and Panel
Data, MIT Press.
