1. Are there any restrictions using .NAME domains?

There are no restrictions. The intended use is for individuals to represent their personal names, nicknames, screen names, pseudonyms, or other types of identification labels.

2. What is a .NAME email registration?

Similar to registering a domain only, individuals can also just register an email address.  It is important to note that with the email registration of joe@doe.name both the second level domain, doe.name, and the third level domain joe.doe.name will not longer be available for registration.
