It is possible, but not usual. In general menu tips go to the status bar.
There are at least 2 ways, intersect WM_NCMOUSEMOVE or intersect WM_MENUSELECT.
But things are a little complicated for items on the menubar (easier for the drop-down items).
I am not going to elaborate on this but is a good exercise to try to do.

Correct, but you probably mean the toolbar.

No, statusbar - temporarily switching to SB_SIMPLE for displaying the help message.
