-If so, do flights from the Bahamas to the United States arrive in the US as if they were domestic flights?
They do. You clear at the airport in the Bahamas. At least that was the way it was in NAS.
I once flew on a USAir Express flight from Treasure Cay to PBI. There was no US customs in Treasure Cay (in fact, there wasn't much of anything), and so we cleared customs in PBI. I understand that NAS has pre-clearance, but other airports in the Bahamas may not.

I think that the Bahamas is amending its immigration policy to make passports mandatory (even from US citizens) as opposed to a birth certificate. Other than that, the other points were covered (FPO offers pre-clearance and your passport does get stamped). Have fun!
