It would depend entirely on what edition of the book you have. A 1st (1852) edition is probably worth somewhere between $100 and $500 dollars, depending on its condition.
No. Anyone familiar with Masonry who reads the Book of Mormon would find no correlation. The Book of Mormon is similar to the Bible and is considered by Mormons as another testament of Jesus Christ, to be used side-by-side with the Bible. You can read the Book of Mormon online at the "Related Links" below.
The price of various editions of the Book of Mormon can vary widely. Some are worth very little and others can be worth tens of thousands of dollars. It all depends on the condition of the book, any documented owners, what edition it is, etc. You should contact a professional appraiser of Mormon books. John Hajicek of Missouri and Ken Saunders of Utah are considered the leading experts on Mormon books in the nation. (Ken Saunders even does the book appraisals for Antiques Roadshow). Check out the "Related Links" below to contact them. If you email them photos and a description of your copy, they can offer an appraisal.

It depends on where "locally" is to you. Many nice antique shops or rare book shops will know of someone who can appraise antique books, but they may or may not know much about the worth of a Book of Mormon, unless it is a first edition (1830). I would consider the best Book of Mormon appraisers nationally to be Ken Sanders of Salt Lake City, Utah (he does book appraisals for the Antique Roadshow) and John Hajicek of Kansas City, Missouri (who has the largest personal collection of Mormon artifacts in the world). Their websites are at the "Related Links" below.

Yes. All members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) believe that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and that it is a volume of scripture to be used as a companion with the Holy Bible. This is a key doctrine of the Church, and belief in the Book of Mormon is a requirement for baptism. Joseph Smith called the Book of Mormon the "Keystone of our religion", meaning that belief in the Book of Mormon is fundamental, and if taken out the entire church would collapse.

No. Mitt Romney will take the oath of office on the Bible. Mitt Romney believes that both the Bible and the Book of Mormon are scripture, and that both are of equal importance.

It depends entirely on the condition. You would need to have it appraised by an antique book collector, and for the best estimate, one specializing in Mormon documents. They would most likely have to physically handle the book or have some very good photos in order to know how much the book is worth. As a very rough estimate, I have seen a handful of 1908 editions, one that had some markings and a cover in very bad shape was selling for only $8. Others were up for bid and selling for possibly ten times that. Check out the "Related Links" below to get in contact with a few people and groups specializing in antique Mormon books and documents, they might be able to help. (I would personally suggest Ken Sanders, he does the book appraisals for Antiques Roadshow)
The value of antique books varies greatly based on their condition and provenance (the story behind them). If the book is in really great condition or you can prove it was owned by someone of note, it will be worth much more than one in poor condition. And of course, the value also depends on the interest in the market, which fluctuates a lot. It would be best to have your book appraised by a book store specializing in antique books or to get in contact with established collectors focusing on Mormon documents.

On the cover of the Book of Mormon it typically just says "The Book of Mormon, Another Testament of Jesus Christ". It is possible to get the cover engraved or personalized with the owners name, so if there is another name on the cover it is probably the name of the owner of that particular book. Inside the Book of Mormon, there are many names. The Book of Mormon covers the history of a people for about 2500 years, so many people are named.
