44100Hz 16bit PCM WAV - bit for bit CD quality. Well, ok, there are some technicalities to it, but that will give you bit for bit recording.

wma lossless and WAV will yield the same sound quality, while wma lossless will be smaller, and it can be tagged while WAV can not, so wma lossless would be the better choice.

There will be no difference in quality. Imagine WMA lossless as putting a .wav in special .zip file meant for music. When you take it out of the .zip, exact same file.
