1) Just add the time dummies to a fixed effect command. E.g. if t is the time variable, y the dependent, x1 and x2 the independent, then you can use 
xi: xtreg y x1 x2 i.t, fe
2) You should use the overall R-square. But I have seen also all three of them (e.g. Management Science Vol. 48, No. 1, January 2002 pp. 4460). You can find out more if you have a look at the FAQ about the R-square, in particular "Why isn't the calculation of R2 the same for areg and xtreg, fe?" and "How can I get an R-squared value when a Stata command does not supply one?"
3) Intra-group correlation is the correlation between the observations in the same group. Thus, if groups are defined by the panel-ID variable, it is the serial or auto-correlation, and the cluster option can correct for it (at least if AR1).
