2. Yes, there can be two passwords in LMDE. Normally only the user password is used and (provided this user is member of group sudo) allows acting as root. But you can have a separate root password if you choose to do so. I did once, but sadly this doesn't work as expected because in this case some programs want you to enter the user password while others expect the root password. The popup won't give you a clue. You end up having to use the same password for both.
