Though some answers+comments say that this is optional, there is no source given. So I think this question makes sense. Here is a possible reason for specifying batting order. If a batsman is out, and the next batsman has not yet come in within fixed some time, then he is given out. Which batsman is out depends on batting order.
I'm assuming you mean the popping crease, which is the horizontal line at the bowler's end closest to the batsman. Fast bowlers in general try to get as close to a no-ball as possible without actually conceding one, and umpires generally have to be very vigilant on this. The bowler is trying to wring every last kph out of the delivery, and so trying to get ...
The essential difference is that bowlers must by law keep their elbows straight. This means that a run-up is used to generate pace, rather than the stepping motion pitchers use, and pitchers can use their upper-body muscles to generate further pace. I'm not a bio-mechanic expert, so can't explain the actual processes involved, sorry.
Basically, it generates more money & more viewership. Some points to highlight the end result: If a match starts at 10 AM, then TV programs can start at 9:30 AM, covering the pitch-inspection, the coin-toss, etc. Here the walk-in ceremony will add program time and ADvertisement time on TV. By including some more extras, the TV show can start at 9 AM. ...

I don't believe there is anything in the Laws of Cricket which specify where a batsman must stand for a ball to be allowed. However, there is the well known "Law of Don't Be Completely Totally and Utterly Stupid" - I fail to see any possible advantage that a batsman could gain from standing behind the stumps.
A bowler can get a hat-trick by bowling 3 different overs. The 1st wicket is taken by the bowler on the last ball of 1st over. The 2nd wicket is taken on the first ball of the second over. But this wicket was the last wicket of the innings. So he cannot ball this over completely. The 3rd wicket is taken on the first ball of the third over in the second ...
As with the portentous first-over of New Zealand's innings in the 2015 World Cup final, "castled" is most used for being bowled by a full-length ball or yorker. The fumbling as the ball squidges between bat and feet may even suggest the chess castling motion.

According to wikipedia, "One-day cricket matches last for six hours or more". wiki
They're not. The space on the form is optional. Section 1.2 of the 2015 World Cup Playing Regulations covers nomination of players - batting order is not mentioned. As someone said in the comments, the TV people like it, but teams can and do change it at will, as it's a tactical weapon.
