It would be quite impossible to provide answers to your questions by limiting to round about 100 words each. I can only try to provide what I know in the simplest way to your questions.
(1)Ethics and practices of Christianity:
God is the only truthful and righteous god in the entire universe, all other gods are simply fake. All human beings are basically born with original sin.
One can only be salvaged through the resurrection of Jesus. There will be a judgment day where all human beings, alive or dead, will be judged by God. All will be sentenced to hell if they had committed wrong doings and those who served God to the kingdom of god to enjoy eternal life.
Christians are committed to the teaching of Jesus and the Bible: to forgive, to love and help, to obey and serve God and most of all to preach the Gospels to the rest of the world.
In Buddhism, there are numerous Gods to be worshiped and according to one’s preferences. For the convenience of worship practice, many Buddhist Gods have their appearances carved in statues and painted in pictures. Buddhist rituals are multifarious in nature.
Although the teaching of Buddhism seems similar to the teaching of Christianity, the most important teaching always emphasizes on the practice and achieving enlightenment by relieving oneself from the bondage of life-and-death.
(2) Bhiksu is a fully ordained male monk where as a Bhiksuni is a female nun. They are the ones that are determined to leave the passions and delusions of life and become Buddhist monks and nuns. They are devoted to the practice and teaching of Buddha. Basically every Bhiksu will have to comply with the “250 Complete Commandments” and “500 Complete Commandments (348 in real practice)” for the Bhiksuni.
Only Traditional Chinese Buddhism requests their monks and nuns to practice vegetarian diet. Vegetarian dieting is not a requisite for Buddhists anywhere in the world.
For all laiety who practice Buddhism, there are the “10 Prohibitions or Commandments” that are stipulated for them to observe.
