1) ради бога literally means for God's sake, I don't really care how it used in English when one's making an excuse, so you have to find the more appropriate translation by yourself.
2) that could be translated as I'm alright, I don't think that literal translation it would be sin to complain about it used somewhere
3) yes, yes
4) И в чем смысл этого? You can also say it with the actual word for purpose цель as well, both are normal for real language. However, I tend to use смысл more :)
