Chapter 2 Question

In the example sentances for Chapter 2 the answer key has
"Salve O Patria" translated as "Hello, O Fatherland".

Why is it not "Be Well O Fatherland" ?

In my 4th edition, it does not define Salve as "hello".

Can it also mean hello ? ?

Amabo te idiom

Does the idiom amabo te for please in Wheelock Chapter 1 remain in the singular even when addressing more than one person.

e.g. Vocate me, amabo te

or

vocate me, amabo vos?

Ch 36 I don't cook for cooks!

This little couplet starts:
Lector et auditor nostros probat, Aule, libellos,
sed quidam exactos esse poeta negat.

Does this translate as:
The reader and the listener approve our pamphlets, Aulus
but a certain poet says they're not finished ?
If so, why is probat singular? I would have expected probant.
Cheers

Since his hope is becoming very small, let him confess that he commanded those two men not to do it.
Cum fiat spes illius minima, fateatur se imeravisse istis duobus ne id facerent.
First of all let me agree that the answer is ...

the difference between perfect and pluperfect?

SALVETE OMNES!
I'm up to chapter 12 right now and it looks like Latin is just splitting hairs here...
So what is the difference between I have praised (perfect) and I had praised (pluperfect)?
Would it depend on the rest of the sentence? Like I have praised Apollo in the past, and I might continue to do so, vs, I had praised Apollo until I found out Jupiter was stronger?

How did I do with ...
