In answer to your question 2, the place to change the start date for the 
academic year can be found in the includes/inc_global.php file.  Look 
for lines like the following:

// The month (1-12) in which the academic year is deemed to start 
(always on 1st of the month)
define('APP__ACADEMIC_YEAR_START_MONTH', 9);

I think the online documentation is for version 1 of WebPA and not 
version 2 which is why you could not find this information.
