Questions for Ali

I had this in my lj, but then thought it best to move it on over.

one
ager, agri, m. field farm

Does this mean we're talking:
agerus, ageri, agero, agerum, agero, ager
??
or
agrus, agri, agro, agrum, agro, agre
??

two
How do you know which is masculine forms nad which are feminine forms - I mean, take "friend" for example. Amica, amicae (f), or Amicus, amici (m) - when you decline them, aren't they going to look the same? Or is one first declension and the other second, in which case why do they both show up in this one?

For that matter, how do you know which declension to use?

Is it that, in the dictionary it shows up with Nom and Gen? Actually, is that Nom Sing and Gen Sing, or Nom Sing and Nom Plural? Or did you already tell us and i've forgotten? *confused*
