comment Is there general Earth Projection in ArcGIS for Desktop?
To a high degree of accuracy, the formula area = length * width will work beautifully. Assuming a circumference of 24,901 miles gives 24,900 square miles as the area. Now you can focus on the mapping. Although you don't need to project the whole earth--that's impossible to do in a continuous fashion, anyway--you do need to project the region around the rectangle itself. And you're on the right track with equal area projections if you would like to visually compare your rectangle's area with areas of other regions on the same map. That should help narrow your options.

comment How to find a point some n meters away from lat/lon
Although questions like this one are answerable, it is important at the outset to note that your criteria do not define a single point. For instance, if you travel 3250193 m east and then 1115573 m north, you will arrive at a very different location than if you first traveled 1115573 m north and then 3250193 m east. Therefore we would need to know more about what you're really trying to do before we could give a good answer. Please feel free to edit your question; the community can then re-open it.

Focal stats work just fine with sectors: ESRI calls them wedge-shaped neighborhoods.
