You mean a connexion to the captive portal or the admin page? You can
make the web admin interface use https.
It doesn't look like the captive portal can. You can use MAC or IP
addresses for authentication.
You could probably use a vpn to secure your connexion to the secure
portal, or use encryption on your access point. But I don't have such a
setup so I might not be 100% accurate.

Example of what I'm doing with pptp: I and a few collegues can connect
via VPN and have access to our files, exchange (eeesh) server, etc. No
matter where we are.

If you set the firewall rules accordingly, it should, yes.

Should work, yes.
