Half-Fare Card?

I have been reading up on the ways to get around Switzerland/Zurich area specifically. And have a few questions, some may be just silly.

I think I will be going with the Half-Fare card? I will be visiting on weekends mostly and maybe a few times a month during the week. I take the S6 line. With this card every time I board a train to go to Zurich I use the machine to pay for a 1/2 button for reduced fare?

And what is the difference between 1st class and 2nd class tickets? The machines only accept coins, but I can use my card inside the ticket booth if open I guess.

And the after 7 o'clock system? And if I do not catch my train in the night, are taxis the only option or bus routes run later in the evening? I see some people also stamping their tickets? When do I do this?

What are my best options?
