It means bread that is dry and slightly stale, which is usually several days old. If you need stale bread (for stuffing, for example) and you don't have any, leaving it uncovered overnight is a good way to 'stale' it.

Yes you can. You can leave a piece of bread in foil in the sun. You can all so leave a mirror a few feet away from the bread. The mirror has to have a reflection of the sun though.

If you add nothing to it, (as in butter or margarine) then, yes, you can leave it 'out' overnight, but I'd leave it wrapped in the same lidded container or aluminum foil I baked it in.
