Janko, as to your first question, a suitable tag is that used by OpenSeaMap:


This tag is applied to a node at the actual location of the fuel 
station, rather than the harbour:fuel:diesel tag, which merely lists a 
facility within a harbour area, but does not indicate the location of 
the fuel station.
