Yes.  The charger for the 2000/3000 series battery packs is actually
just a 6000 series charger with the plate for mounting the 2000/3000
series battery packs added to the top.  Under that it still even has
the pins which fit into the 6000 series battery!

The cord is the same used on many European products, so if you can't
get it from Rollei you can get it from someone else.  For example it
is the same fitting as used on my small Visatec flash units.

Yes, that's what it is for.  You can charge a spare battery while
driving around in your car.  Works fine.

Red indicates not ready yet, still charging.  Green indicates charged.

Don't know.  Maybe someone else knows this.  I have charged my 6006
batteries in my car but didn't pay any attention to how long it took.

Not much to know.  When camera runs too slow charge the battery pack.
