It works fine under a TV, of course, but don't limit yourself. You could set it on a book case and use it to play music from your cell phone in the den.

This isn't USB connected, really. It has a USB plug on it, but you don't plug a sound generating thing into it, so much as plug a storage device into it. Then, the built-in player will play the files on the device. If you're going to send sound to it, you'll be using the analog jack or the optical port.
If you're using the optical port, you can select up to a 300ms delay to help it sync up to a slow display.

I think it is better. It uses big chunks of paper and foam moving to make the big noises instead of audio perception tricks. The Jambox sounds amazingly good for as small as they are, but they always sound 'fake' to me. For my uses, I'd rather have a soundbar with a sub.
It still probably isn't what you want, though. It isn't exactly what I would call 'portable'.

You control almost everything from the remote. There are only four buttons on the bar itself, and they're mostly just for power, source, and volume. You can navigate a menu system through it, and might be able to arjust the sub that way, but using the remote is much more practical.

You could, yes. The bar just shows up as bluetooth headphones. However, I think you won't like doing it this way. You have to tell the bar to reconnect to bluetooth from its remote every time you use it. It doesn't automatically reconnect, although it does remember the pairing.

Sure. You would use the analog-in jack. You'd probably need an adapter to take two RCA Phono plugs and convert them to an 1/8" plug.
