In reply to your first question, yes you should check the tenting box. For the second question, I would use a polygon plane (copper pour)which you can shape to any size and easily create square right angle corners. You can stitch the pour to internal ground (if desired) by the use of via's again tented. The pour will be masked during post processing. To create the pour select "Place" from the pull-down menu, and the select "Polygon Plane". A pop-up menu will appear where you can set your various parameters. With that completed it is a simple task of drawing your shape. This is all based on Protel 99SE, I would assume the process would be nearly the same for DXP.

Hope this helps.
