Those are good questions.  I believe the answers would be:

Locked portlets will always be at the top of their current column.

Locked portlets can be present in any column

Locked portlets can only be moved by privileged users (likely admins).  
Users with privilege could drag and drop locked portlets just like other 
portlets, though their position will follow normal locked portlet rules 
(always at the top of the column and ordered by priority).  This may 
require changes to uPortal to accomplish.  An indication should be given 
to admin users which portlets are locked.  I'll think through that 
interaction and come up with a design.
