configuring node hostnames in a cluster

I'm setting up a test cluster, and am a bit confused about these 3
configuration variables:

1) riak_nodename appears to be a logical name for the node, unused for
any networking purposes.  correct?

2) what is the difference between riak_hostname and riak_web_ip?  are
they usually the same value?

3) is there a way to configure riak so that nodes communicate using
internal hostnames, but clients can connect using the external or
public hostnames?
