In the FAQ on the right of this page there is one titled Tips for First timers - in this all of your questions about getting around are answered in some detail.

Songthaew 20B

Tuk Tuk between 60B and 100B

Taxi (some use meters - but you can negotiate an hourly rate as well which will vary depending on distance). Mostly people get around by tuk tuk or songthaew. There are not a lot of taxis that cruise the streets. If you come from the airport by taxi get the drivers card so you can call if you want a taxi.

This can really vary - some drivers will quote you a very low price, but be relying on picking up some commissions for taking you into places where they get some kick back. If a price seems to good to be true it probably is.

Be very clear about what you want to do - and if you don't want to shop or visit factories make this clear upfront before you agree on a price.

A tuk tuk for a half day might be something like 400B in and around the city (maybe a little more). A songthaew about the same - maybe 600B. Again, it depends on how far you want to go for fuel costs etc.
