Here are the most direct answers to your questions I can make:
1. Muhammad is the last Prophet of the cycle which began with Adam, and includes Prophets such as Abraham, Noah, Moses, Zoroaster, Buddha, Jesus, and Muhammad, plus some others mentioned in the Qur'an, such as Hud. Now begins the age of fulfillment and a new cycle beginning with the Bab and Baha'u'llah. All are Messengers of the same God (called, Yahweh, Allah, or other names, they refer the the only true God).
Reference: Gleanings from the Writings of Bahá
(go to section XXII "The Bearers of the Trust of God...")
Also in the Kitab-i-Iqan He said:
"Notwithstanding the obviousness of this theme, in the eyes of those that have quaffed the wine of knowledge and certitude, yet how many are those who, through failure to understand its meaning, have allowed the term "Seal of the Prophets" to obscure their understanding, and deprive them of the grace of all His manifold bounties! Hath not Muhammad, Himself, declared: "I am all the Prophets?" Hath He not said as We have already mentioned: "I am Adam, Noah, Moses, and Jesus?" Why should Muhammad, that immortal Beauty, Who hath said: "I am the first Adam" be incapable of saying also: "I am the last Adam"? For even as He regarded Himself to be the "First of the Prophets" -- that is Adam -- in like manner, the "Seal of the Prophets" is also applicable unto that Divine Beauty. It is admittedly obvious that being the "First of the Prophets," He likewise is their "Seal."
(Baha'u'llah, The Kitab-i-Iqan, p. 160)
2. As to miracles, both the Bab and Baha'u'llah performed miracles, they showed on many occasions knowledge of future events and power over life and death, including healing the sick. Baha'u'llah made it clear, however that miracles can not be considered a proof, they are only meaningful to the people who witness them personally, so are not emphasized in the Baha'i Teachings.

3. The Universal House of Justice is the supreme body of the Baha'i Faith, but only has an authoritative role within the Faith. It is not intended to fulfill the same role as national or international governments. According to Baha'u'llah's teachings it is the Kings, Presidents and national legislative bodies must gather together and agree on the formation of an international tribunal to resolve differences between nations and prevent war, and that eventually there must be a world federal government, democratically elected by the representatives of each nation. In this way the Will of God will be fulfilled, not through force. The The Message of Baha'u'llah will be the power that unites people, because that is the only one that brings about complete unity of all religions and races and peoples.
Abdul-Baha explained this 100 years ago:
"The world is in greatest need of international peace. Until it is established, mankind will not attain composure and tranquillity. It is necessary that the nations and governments organize an international tribunal to which all their disputes and differences shall be referred. The decision of that tribunal shall be final. Individual controversy will be adjudged by a local tribunal. International questions will come before the universal tribunal, and so the cause of warfare will be taken away.
Fifty years ago Bahá'u'lláh wrote Epistles to the kings and rulers of the world in which the teachings and principles revealed by Him were embodied and set forth. These Epistles were printed in India forty years ago and spread broadcast.
Briefly, by the promulgation of these principles Bahá'u'lláh has caused the prejudices which afflicted the people of the Orient to disappear. The communities which have accepted His teachings are now living together in the greatest love and harmony. When you enter a meeting of these people, you will find Christians, Jews, Muslims, Zoroastrians, Buddhists gathered together in perfect fellowship and agreement. In their discussions the greatest spirit of tolerance and friendship has supplanted the former hostility and hatred witnessed among them.
