That is because the SB-600 doesn't have Commander mode built in.

No. The SB-600 should be set in Remote mode when it is used off camera. You then set the control mode (TTL or M) in the Commander be it your built-in Speedlight or your SB-700 in Master (Commander) mode.

Yes! The lower you set the power level, the shorter the flash duration (t.1) ( for future reference and for strobe users reading this: this is true for Speedlights and a few strobes, though when the power is reduced on most strobes, the flash duration increases (gets longer) ) .
