check your my.cnf file, make sure there is a bind-address line in there. there should be one in there by default, hopefully it is set to localhost. if you're running 2.2.11, you should be good, just keep an eye for any security updates.

Yes, you should remove those accounts. Do a quick google for "securing fresh mysql install" - that will give you more than a few steps to do.

the easiest way for you to do that is to turn off the default apache, install macports, and use that apache. it will be more up to date than what comes packaged with os x.
