For people who are not developers and myself included, it takes a lot of frustration and customization to get the Studiopress theme to the functionality we want.
I don't have a development or design background. When I bought the Genesis Framework and my first theme (Pretty Darn Cute Design's Modern Blogger), I had no idea what I was doing. I wasn't at all frustrated, because the support I received was excellent. I quickly got hooked on the Genesis Framework, and how easy it was to be able to do what I wanted (and how easy it was to customize). Since that time (less than 4 years ago), I've built a thriving business building websites using the Genesis Framework exclusively. I've released my own theme, and I provide theme support for Pretty Darn Cute Design. All because I didn't get frustrated when I first started.
No problem. Do you have a front-page.php file? Is so, create a widget, and then hook it into the front-page.php file: http://my.studiopress.com/tutorials/register-widget-area/

This guide by Brad should assist you: http://wpsites.net/web-design/remove-posts-display-home-page/
I'm seeing an image in your excerpt on your blog page. Are you saying that the featured image isn't displaying? If so, have you checked the box to display the featured image in your Genesis Theme Settings?
Are you wanting to have them the same size/layout of the demo? If so, are you adding FOUR Author Pro widgets into the Front Page 2 widget? The settings for this widget are here: http://my.studiopress.com/setup/author-pro-theme/widgets/genesis-author-pro-featured-book-widget-settings/
Once you have added the four widgets, and set the image sizes, make sure that you have run the regenerate thumbnails plugin.
Since this is a theme setup question (if you are wanting it set up like the demo), you can submit a support ticket directly to StudioPress here: http://my.studiopress.com/help/
The Default sizes from from your Media Settings (which you can changes) Dashboard > Settings > Media
In terms of image size for working with a responsive template - if you are are wanting them to be retina ready, I believe the recommendation is twice the maximum size at which you want them to display. Here's a post Brian wrote: http://briangardner.com/optimize-images-retina-display/
I apologize for the confusion - in your first post, you requested it be added to your blog page; now you're requesting home page? Is your home page using front-page.php (or do you have a static home page?
