RE: Rotation Thud

That might be the Air/Ground Sensor.There are two sensors on the main gears which basicly tells the airplane if it is on ground or airborne.Also spinning wheels are stopped as they go into their bays after lift of and than braking action can be heard from the inside too

RE: Pressurizing On Ground Or In Air?

The cabin begins to pressurise on the ground as the N1 goes over 60%.The outflow valve moves towards close.This helps the passengers and the crew transitioning to pressurized flight easier.And also gives the system better response to ground effect pressure changes during take off.
