Ah, yes. You can do that! 

Click on a tag, and you can update your watching status. The number of
tags are limited at the moment, so if you have any ideas for other tags
you want to add, let me know and I'll add them.

Yes. Watching mode notifies you every time there's a new post in a
topic or category you're watching.

The way it works in Discourse is slightly different. Instead of
splitting a thread by changing the subject, you split the actual topic
in two to form a new one. Once that split happens, you should get
notified that there's a new topic. That split is done by a moderator
rather than a user, as the user can just make a new post.
