afaik, on windows and on mac, scribus uses its own version of python.
on linux scribus uses whatever version the packagers compiled it

if you want to see the result of the print commands you have to start
scribus from a terminal...
otherwise there is no standard output which the scripter can target...

i've posted to the bug tracker a ticket for each of your three
please have a look at it and -- if necessary -- write further comments
i think that there are good chances to see them implemented for the new
scripter engine, which is currently the focus of google summer of code
