Usually folio, although as always there will be variations. Scrolls would be pretty unusual though.

The Malkioni have Secrets for the same reason the Heortlings do - its just that they use different means to contact the transcendant, rather than theist gods. If the God of Carpentry gives you access to a Secret, there's no reason why the Patron Saint of Lost Causes (for instance) shouldn't, so far as I can see. Indeed, the Perfecti Secret is likely to be something largely useless on the mundane plane, whereas St Talor's is probably a lot more practical.

Those are both Secrets, IMO, yes. Indeed, Solace of the Body is likely a Great Secret, IMO, in that attaining it would tend to remove you from play...
