1. I wanted to know if I have both WiFi and 3G running on the phone, will things like web browsing be done over the WiFi connection or the 3G? I have a very limited data plan so I wanted to know when I'm connected to WiFi that I'm not using my limited data from the 3G connection.

2. I wanted to know what differences are taking place in the phone when i switch the connection from 3G+2G to only 2G. How does this affect my data usage, web surfing, etc.

3. Is there any way to completely disable the 3G or 2G connection?

Thanks in advance.

For question one the wifi takes priority so as long as you're on wifi you're okay. I'm with att and only have a 200MB data plan and I never go over since I'm always on wifi. For question two if you switch to 2g you will have slower data speed IF you're not on wifi. As for the last question to my knowledge no you can't.
