I'm not an expert on hit highlighting but please find some answers inline:

Whatever token is available in the index, will be matched but I don't think
it is possible to show only those synonyms which matched some documents.
Adding debugQuery=on can give you some more information like how the score
for a particular document was calculated for the given query.

Solr won't compute associations but there are ways of achieving something
similar. For example, the MoreLikeThis functionality clusters related
documents through co-occurrence of terms in a given field. Also, the
TermVectorComponent can give you position information for terms in a
document. You can use that to build your own co-occurrence associations.

If you just want to query for two words within a fixed position difference,
you can do proximity matches.

Perhaps somebody else can weigh on your question #3 and #4.
