I have addressed your queries below. From your description m0n0wall can do

Enable advanced outbound NAT on 

Firewall: NAT -> 'Outbound' tab

Then configure NAT mappings as appropriate. Any network that NAT isn't
configured for will be routed instead. This is great for NATing RFC1918
addresses from behind a LAN interface and also routing public IPs on a DMZ

No, this is just the standard meaning for static routes.

I seem to remember that this has been discussed favourably on the list
before. If you need further info you can do a search at
