1. They are not 100% reliable. You won't really know until you order. But the AT&T Direct techs can iron out database wrinkles if they appear to not be in your favor.
2. I don't know. I don't even know if you can order service without the modem. The normal self install kit includes modem and filters.
3. Reliability of service depends on the condition of both plant and premises wiring. I had a few wrinkles (3.0 Mnps service) due to plant wiring; but they upgraded the neighborhood F2 span for a U-verse deployment, and service was solid after that. A friend had troubles with 6.0 Mbps, but a premises wiring overhaul fixed that.
4. If your modem can auto detect the plant settings, should be "plug'n'play".

Thanks for the info, you can order without a modem, i went threw the signup all the way to where it says enter SSN and there was a option that said no ill use my own router/gateway. I really hope i can get a connection tho, it would be crazy for me to not have internet access. I know there are wireless options from cell phone providers but those wouldnt meet my needs at all.
