    Very quickly...
    1) Highest peak represents molecular weight of molecule in question. After that you get peaks that should be slightly higher (+2 is common), these come from isotopes (for instance +2 is from C14). You'll also have some peaks that result from the molecule falling about (a common peak is from the COOH group falling off of a benzene)
    2) Good question, i dont know jack about gas spect
