    Yes you can play standard dvd's on blu ray players and they will improve the picture.  

    And yes you often will need internet connected to play blu ray discs because some blu rays will search for additional software updates and if it can not find internet access it often will not play.

    Yes and standard DVDs will also look better when played in a Blu-ray.  Not  Blu-ray quality but an improvement.

    1) Yes. But keep in mind that the standard regional restriction on these media discs does apply, especially with DVD. Otherwise, yes, the DVD would typically just play like it normally would if you just pop it into the BluRay player.

    2) Normally, this is not applicable with most players at all.

    1. Yes, and CDs, as well.

    2. No. A BluRay player only needs power to operate, a BluRay disc placed inside of it, and a connection to a TV to play a BluRay film.

    Yes, they play regular DVDs.  As for the internet, the answer is maybe.  The blu rays are encoded and the encoding can be updated, which means the player needs some way to download and install the new keys.  This can be done over the internet.  Most have a way of doing it by downloading the update to a USB key from a computer and then running the update if the player doesn't have internet access.  There should be instructions in the owner's manual.
