1

As in Michah, 3:3 (Rashbam), and in Tehilim, 78:27 (Ramban). See Ramban's objections to this explanation.

2

As the Torah writes in Bereishis, 2:24 "ve'Davak be'Ishto Vehayu le'Bsar Echad". See also, for example Vayikra 18:6,17. This is also the opinion of the Gemara in Kesuvos, 48a (Ramban).

1

Ramban: The Torah is warning the son here, that in the event that he marries another wife, he may not relegate the Meyu'edes to the status of a concubine, by being intimate with her only casually, clothed and on the floor, whilst he is intimate with his second wife regularly, on a bed and without clothes.

2

Like the word "Me'onah" (the 'Mem' of which is not intrinsic [See Rashbam]).

4)

What do we learn from "Im Acheres Yikach Lo

1.

Seforno: One may not marry more women if he cannot provide his obligations to them (Yevamos, 65a).

2.

Kidushin 16a: This equates an Amah to an Arusah. Just like a document can be Mekadesh, it can acquire an Amah.

3.

Rashi: If one marries a woman in addition to the Meyu'edes, he must still fulfill his obligations to the Meyu'edes.

4.

Aruch ha'Shulchan (EH 26:8, based on the Rambam): If he is Mekadesh a woman, these obligations come after Nisu'in. However, a Meyu'edes is like a concubine; these obligations do not apply. This is like one opinion in the Mechilta.
