Well, also the calorie demands of magic tend to make you hungry.

Psionic computers can exchange information with real computers, they just can't get real fancy. But yes, on a virtual computer an eclipsed kid could pilot a non-immersive SL avatar on regular SL.

Yes, uncontrolled psionics could affect technology, that's probably how it was discovered.

They can't give you a cooking class with real food, but they can demo it with virtual food. Eclipsed like food because they're hungry all the time (...I'm imagining it as like the first month of breastfeeding but way more so, which may not be an accessible metaphor for everyone, but I was constantly hungry in a way that made everything delicious and huge restaurant portions manageable, it was actually great) and because of this experience.

Is training duration a set time or do they have some way of monitoring the Setting Shit On Fire? Or there could be a test or something I guess.

There are psions who can tell if you're under control, which serves as double-check against an intuition the kids get.
