comment Versions of Python & QGIS for new user to both to install?
Like Andre said, because QGIS installs it's own version of Python (for good or bad) you can still have different system Pythons installed. I have 3.4, 2.6, 2.7 + the QGIS ones.

comment Import QGIS Python modules in Python command line or standalone script
I would recommend using the Python that is installed with QGIS. It contains PyQt and the other stuff QGIS needs.

comment System variable PATH overwritten in Qgis
Yes it's done intentionally to avoid dll conflicts with system dlls etc. Everything QGIS needs is inside the install folder so we use that as the base.
