{lon} would likely be better.

We don't know. I don't know that it's been used in canon enough to judge 
well, though voragh can solve that mystery. I'd probably tend to use {Dach} 
or perhaps more meaningfully {SaHbe'}, since both interpretations are 
appropriate in this setting.

Each of these works to express slightly different meanings. My guess is 
that the last one most accurately expresses what you seek.

bIqarbe'. nIteb SuvnIS SuvwI''a', 'ach reH tlha'wI'pu' poQ DevwI'na'.
