yes, tecplot support just linear elements, but u convert a quad-triangle to four linear triangles then use tecplot (not a perfect solution, but what to do with this weakness of tecplot)

another solution is to use Paraview, it have support for quadratic elements as well (i'm not sure but i guess it split them in the same manner then visualize)

is simple, should write a vtk file, for this read this document:

http://www.vtk.org/pdf/file-formats.pdf

writing text vtk file is easy, but binart is bit more difficult, there is a smaple F90 code to write a binary VTK file by Renato Elias here:
