comment Working with GDB in QGIS 2.0 - plain language instructions please!
You can test with sample data that is packaged with the API. In the folder you unzip there is directory called samples and in there is a directory called data. In the data directory there are several FGDBs, if you can open those in QGIS then yes, most likely the databases you're trying to open are from an incompatible version.

comment Can someone clarify some details about freehand line tracing in QGIS?
For #2, I'm not sure why you can't fill in the ID field. It may be autopopulated for you. For #3, as is most likely each individual feature will be standing alone. You can group them later, into a multiline string. Look up multilines and multipolygons to figure out if they will work for what you're trying to do.

For #1 it depends on how you want to handle your data, and that data is the real power of GIS, without it you just have lines on a map. Those fields in the background are where you can begin to do some real analysis. You can add as many fields as you need to track data related to those roads, or to allow you to tie your road layer to other tables in other databases and spreadsheets. The datatype (text, number, etc) are how the computer handles the data in that field. You might want to look at some tutorials on databases and creating tables to get a better idea of what's going on there.
