Building atop of laurencemadill's answer, if you do not want to invest the money for Lightroom at the moment, RawTherapee is a similar raw development tool that is open source and serves my basic editing needs well. It supports profiles as well and you can batch convert images at your convenience. (For example, Ctrl+A to select all, assign profile, send them ...

Short answer is no for the reason you've stated: silver grains in black and white film block light in the same manner as dust. Color images are made of dye clouds which are translucent and do not block light. The only defect repair I'm aware of that works on b/w is SilverFast scanning software, which has a feature called SRD (not to be confused with iSRD ...

Lightroom can apply the same settings to multiple images. You can edit one image, make it look good, and then apply the same settings to the other pictures taken at the same time. It works best for things like white balance that are likely to need the same adjustments for all the images taken at the same time/location, but all of the other settings can be ...

There is a simple method to automate the process using Photoshop. It could be recorded as an action or scripted. Load all of the images into a stack and take the median of each pixel (there is a built in function to do this, might just be in Photoshop extended though). This should give you an image of just the background. Load up the first image and paste ...

You can set up an action to select areas that have no image and do a context aware fill. This way you won't need to crop if there is enough information at the edges of your frame and the results are usually great when it works.

I don't believe there is any sort of automatic crop functionality as part of Photoshop CS6's photomerge feature. Another option to consider is that in many cases, content aware fill can do a great job of filling in the vacant areas near the jagged edges, giving you a larger resulting file.

What do you mean with "automatically process RAW photographs"? Software cannot "automatically edit" photos easily because it does not know what you wan to see and show. Software can only "auto-optimize" photos based on certain preset parameters which what I suspect you are after. However the results are very varied and not something that can really be ...

In Lightroom I apply some settings to images on import, but only fairly generic settings: all images I import from my camera get a slight contrast boost, 'clarity' and 'vibrance' boosts, but not by too much. Although there is an 'auto tone' button in Lightroom which I expect you can apply automatically on import, nothing can really replace visually ...
