I didn't make it!
The custum maps avalible for download at HaloFiles : Can I go online with them and verse other players on these maps? Or can I connect to other servers using those maps? And if so another question: Do I have to have the custum map installed in order to see the servers hosting those maps?

for halo custom edition you need to have the maps extracted and in the 'maps' folder in order to play on them. You have a filter setting that you can turn on and off the ability to see maps you do not have in the maps folder
Yes but only people who also have downloaded the map that you downloaded can join your game.So download popular maps to avoid being a loner;)
You need to have that map installed to go onto other people's server that is using that map. Or else, you'll get the annoying "unable to join the server" message. And yes, you can verse other people with the custom maps. I suggest coldsnap and hugeass. And check the servers to see which maps are the most popular(most used) and download those. Don't download like 100 maps that no one even plays.
I think the question was answered 3 weeks ago. :p
