I don't know if I can answer all your questions, but I'll try to
answer the ones I can.

It isn't entirely clear to me that a terminal widget is really what
you'd want, but I'll leave that up to you to figure out.

Bertrand> [Q1] : why are there a GtkTerm and a zvt widget in

My understanding is that the GtkTerm widget was written and then
mostly abandoned.  Meanwhile the zvt widget was written.  It is
actively maintained; I advise using it in preference to GtkTerm.

My only advice is to avoid them unless you really need them.

I guess I didn't do too well on the answers.  Hopefully somebody with
a bit more knowledge will reply.
