    RBI guidelines have regulated paypal type of the payment processor. So there is no issue with the paypal and connecting the indian bank accounts. If you get money in paypal, you'd get the money processed on same or next day. You can also have the money into bank account using NEFT. Many small business owners and the freelancers are using the paypal for around 15 or so years and they are handling just fine with the system.

    Charges for the conversion is however not as per the bank rate but based on paypal's own currency conversion rate. For example banks have 1 USD = 65 Rs. But in case of paypal the conversion rate goes to 1 USD = 63.5 at the same day. The reason being paypal takes its cut for the conversion. That's how they make money for their service.

    There is no issue. As RBI has given instruction to link your Bank account with paypal, as Indian paypal customers are not allowed to hold funds in their paypal account.
    Also you need to update your PAN card number for verification.
    You need to link your own bank account number with paypal, you can not add third party or any other bank account with your registered paypal account.
    Suppose you receive some funds on Monday. Then it will auto withdraw to your link account on Tuesday adn you might receive the fund on Wednesday or maximum on thursday.
    First of all suppose you receive 100 USD, then paypal deduct 4.4% and your account reflect 95.6 usd.
    After that they will convert the USD to INR. Their banker in India is citi bank,normally citibank charge around Rs 2 on each usd, suppose in market 1USD=67INR then you might get only 65 INR for 1 USD.
