You can configure and manage websites for different purposes and different domains by adding them to the site definition node in the Sitecore.config file. All you need to add a patch file containing the new site definition. If you have already a patch you can update it as well.

Select only these indexes (prefix "DEV_") and index them.
I would recommend that you use deploy time replacement to control connection strings. Have a look at how Octopus Deploy does this: https://octopus.com/docs/deployment-process/variables/variable-substitutions
I then have development connection strings checked into source control and use config transforms to add in the token for replacement at deploy time. It'...
