1. You can buy the OV5647 camera but the documentation for it is not available.
2. The userland code is on github https://github.com/raspberrypi/userland
3. Android doesn't run on your RPi
4. Sorry, I don't understand that question.

BTW, NOOBS isn't an operating system, it's an installer/boot manager.
