2D-Simulation of airfoil

I am completly new to CFD and currently working on a project where I have to do a simulation of an 2D-Airfoil.
The following data is given:
Fluid velocity: 4.5 m/s
Stationary and incompressible flow
Static Pressure: 3 bar
So for structered mesh, you have to consider the diffrent types of farfields, which effect the quality of mesh, but since Simulation CFD only supports unstructered mesh, I have chosen a simple rectangle as my farfield, with two more fields for denser mesh.
Since I am a novice in this field, I would like to ask you some Questions.
1) My first question is about the boundary conditions: I have set the right edge (inlet) to "velocity" (fluidspeed 4.5 m/s) and the outlet to "pressure" (3 bar gage). The other two edges are set to slip/symmetry. Are these BCs chosen correctly?
2) I am amazed but at the same time sceptical about the mesh generation. It seems really easy to generate a unstructured mesh but at the same time I can't estimate its quality. Seeing the results, my generated mesh seems to do a good job. Could one of you take a look at my mesh and results? So far, I have mostly seen hexa-meshs for 2D-simulations, but can a tetra-mesh be that accurat too?
3) How can I make a cp-plot (pressure coefficient along both surfaces (pressure and suction side)). I have an excel-file with points of interest for measuring. Is there a possibilty to import these points?
4) My last question for now: Autodesk Simulation CFD chooses the Standard k-ε turbulence model by default. I don't know where I can change this but is this model suitable for my task?
I know these are quite some questions, but I would really appreciate it if you guys could help me here.
Many Thanks and Best Regards
PS: Here is the result file

This has been covered decently in the SimCFD forums on the Autodesk page.
There was another person that went through a lot of this on a 2D airfoil where I believe the only difference was that theirs was in Air not water.
As far as Turbulence models this is changed under the Solve dialog / Physics / Turbulence button.
And discussed in the online Help
