    That's just the tip of the iceberg in terms of Obama appearances in manga...

    I think it was Alibaba, I'm not sure but if it's big enough to expand past domestic borders It's most likely really popular in China.
    I've also browsed the English site, It sells stuff that they sell in China for bulk purchasers, customers are usually wholesalers and resellers, though I do think they have a website for personal buyers, I'm not sure.

    Not quite sure, but some do and some don't... Can't really list specific examples though...

    But I think... Japanese Novels do the tweaking of names more...

    There is Dr. Pepper, or Dr. P for Heaven's Memo Pad and Steins;Gate. It's not very subtle in using them, but the shows don't push the products much into the audiences' faces.

    Sergeant Keroro has a lot of Gunpla collection.

    Also, that one episode of Gintama where they parodied Resident Evil, Tales of series, Mario, etc in just one episode.
