1. I want to be able to display an entire page of photos over a plain background. If the user selects a photo then that photo will display enlarged. All I have seen that Photo Gallery will allow me to do is display 3 or 4 photos at the bottom of the page. Is his the only format that Photo Gallery supports?
The photo gallery is single image style gallery rather than a full page of photos style gallery. If you're looking for a gallery that does the page of thumbnails that you click on thing you'll need to use something like colorbox or lightbox2 to get that type of setup.

2. I am disappointed that it is apparently necessary to generate HTML code in order to include a Photo Gallery in CoffeeCup VSD. I had been led to believe that this would not be necessary.
HTML Code is not only necessary, but if they end up changing this program to a jquery type setup like many of the newer types of gallerys are you'll need to know how to do that anyways. It's not hard at all to do, and VSD includes an HTML tool specifically for entering code like this.
Although I'm sure that Eric must have some information about how to do all this on his site I cannot find it there at all so hopefully he'll chime in here and offer a link to how to do it. I do know it's fairly easy though so try not to get too frustrated with it. All of CoffeeCup's apps have included some HTML or another that has always had to be added to the page whether it was VSD or HTML Editor so this has been no different and has always been this way, it's not something they just changed.
Here's a few articles here on CC that might help you do what you need to do:
