1) Why are camera sensors not square? Surely a square sensor is the most efficient way to get the best out of a lens?

because our field of vision is more rectangular than square (we see more width than height) and it makes for a more natural pic.

4) What is the optimum resolution for small camera sensors? High resolution sensors seem to add significant file size for little discernible improvement in resolution, so what is the cut off for a functional and well rounded small sensor?

Depends on what 'small' means and depends on what you consider functional and well-rounded
