It doesn't matter if the USB port is "high speed" or not - as long as the port is powered it will charge the shuffle. And why don't you just refer to the user manual, it answers both your questions?

If you bothered to look at the little reference card that came in the box then you'd know that a blinking orange light means "Do not disconnect", but can also mean that it is charging at the same time. A constant orange light means that the battery is charging. Why not use iTunes? Its the best and simplest way of putting music on a shuffle.

Not for a Mac iPod

Just my two cents.

Not all programs support the shuffle yet as I know. I think winamp, iTunes, and Anapod are the only ones at the moment.

The iPod will get hot while charging.
