I'd never want to chance the roots clogging up my overflow. It's a sump or display sort of thing IMO.

I read about it...but I still think it is all about being in the sump or display. I wouldn't want the roots getting close to the pump running your HOB.

I think that would be difficult. There isn't much room and you don't want to chance an overflow.

You buy seedlings. The roots are the only part that should be submerged.

Yeah, it's illegal to sell them in any other form if I remember correctly.
