I assume that you did not have pnp
1. Yes, although you will be asked for an address in Toronto for your PR card delivery.
2. Yes
3. Yes, unless you had pnp. Once landed, you are free to move to any place.
4. Montreal, plan to have your own insurance until public health coverage starts (usually after 3 months)

You are asking for trouble if you are flying to Montreal with a layover in Toronto. It will be very clear that you are actually going to Montreal.

Yes they could. They could also go through your luggage and electronics. There was recently someone who was denied PR for exactly what you are planning on doing. He landed and was denied PR when it was clear he was heading to another province to work and not attempting to settle in his PNP province.
