Yes the blueprint says that you should get at least 25 normal keywords and 5 "product name review" keywords. Each of these keywords will have its own article/page on your site, so when your site is done you should have a total of 30 pages.
Yes it is recommended that you should choose a longtail keyword with at least 3 words in it. These keywords should at least be receiving about 1500 searches per month. This is for the 25 normal keywords. As for the 5 "product name review" keywords, they do not need to meet the 1500 searches per month requirement as they will usually have no data in google. There is no data in google because big G only sees a small search volume and decides that it is too small to be considered as a search volume result. However, even when there is no data in google it doesn't mean that no one is searching in google for the "product name review" keywords. As Mark pointed out, these keywords will have low search volume but will convert at least 10 times more than the normal keywords. And the reason behind this is that the person using the "product name review" keyword to search in google has already heard about the product and is considering of purchasing. They are only needing a few more positive reviews on it to convince themselves that they are making an informed decision in buying the product.
As for your question #2. The 25 articles which will be on their own pages should be written to target the keyword you have chosen. So if you are in the weight loss market and one of your keywords is "lose weight after pregnancy" then that keyword phrase should be what the article is about. It should also be within the title of the article. And yes it will be suggesting a product that helps women lose weight after pregnancy.
The 5 "product name review" keywords will have their own articles and will be pointing the reader to the product itself. For example, I am promoting a World of Warcraft Gold Guide and I chose The Gold Secrets Guide, then I will have a product review written about this guide and will give the article the title "Gold Secrets Review". This title is the keyword as well and should at least be placed within the article at least at 1% density. Just make sure the article flows naturally. If the1% keyword density will not maintain the article natural flow, then I suggest to just have the keyword appear at least 2 times within the article. Once within the 1st 50 words of the article and the other within the closing paragraph.
As for your question #3, I don;t know the answer. I don't use the TT Keyword Research tutorial. I just follow the blueprint.
I hope this clears it for you. If you still need to clarify some things just post here in the forum.
