I don't have an SB600 but tried with my SB800.

>Q1: is it in fact necesary to set the fn button to FLASH OFF

Other than setting the Mode Dial to no flash it appears the only other way to use the focus assit on the SB unit while suppressing the flash.

>Q2: If the answer to Q1 = YES, if I depress the fn button
>(set to FLASH OFF) when acquiring focus, will this defeat the
>focus assist flaah?

It didn't on my D7000 and SB800 combo.

>ON?

If you have the AF set to AF-C, it will inhibit the AF assit. And yes when the SB600 is mounted and on, it will disable the built in flash as far as I know.
