1. What are the Stock levels like at the Apple Stores in America.
They're shipping in 3-4 weeks on the site, but realistically that's about 1-2 weeks. In store they can be had probably 3 days a week on average, not too hard to find at retail.

2. What are the Temps like?
According to Anand, they're "Vastly improved" http://www.anandtech.com/show/6023/the-nextgen-macbook-pro-with-retina-display-review/12

3. It has a HDMI connector i dont need to buy an Apple Branded Cable do i?
Correct, just plug it into any HDMI device and you're good to go.
