Default New to Photoshop - ??? Re: postscript

I'm fairly new to postscript files and I will be getting my hands on Photoshop CS2 Creative Suite soon. I don't have a PS capable printer and I'm considering getting one soon. My current printer is an HP laserjet 1600 Series and is no longer enough for the type of projects I put out. Here are a few questions I have:

1. If I create a project in PhotoShop, I assume it will be a PS file.
What happens when I print to a non-PS printer. I've been told
that Acrobat will handle this and also GhostScript PS interpreter
was mentioned. Do I have options outside of purchasing a new
printer to take advantage of PS?

2. If I scan an image to be edited in PhotoShop or Illustrator, I
believe this would be a bitmap file. Can this be converted to a
PS file that I can print as PS?

Hopefully these aren't silly questions, but we all have to start somewhere!!
