need help on putting text on transparent backgrounds

Okay, I'm kind of new to icon-making in general so bear with me if anything I say is kind of stupid. x_X

I have a few questions, actually, and most are unrelated to eachother. So yeah. And I went through the memories as best I could, but I'm still having trouble with a few things. I'm sorry if any of these have already been answered elsewhere.

First off, I'm trying to perfect this icon:



It's 100x100 and the space around it is transparent. The only problem is, if I put the icon on a colored background, little white spaces appear around the text on the transparency. Can someone please tell me how to get rid of it?

Next up, I'm wondering if anyone can tell me what the font used in this icon is:


Icon credit to fairypark.

And lastly I'm just wondering how to make solid black borders around icons, like on the Rinoa one up there. I've found brushes for fancy-looking borders (for lack of a better description), but none for just plain solid borders. Is it a brush or is it a Photoshop effect?

Okay I think that's all. The programs I use are PS7 and ImageReady 7. I'd really appreciate your help.
