1.  It's not a big difference  All sunnis have faith on all imams including shias but some sect of shias dont have faith of sunnis some imam its a difference of perceptions just but the sunnis are superior than shias as they are moderate and realistic ...

2. Sunni Islam is far less organized and more congregationalist than Shiite Islam. Individual Imams lead their congregations according to the words of Mullahs and Faqihs (Islamic Jurists) from their chosen Madhhab (Islamic School of Practice). There are some Shiite Imams and Mullahs whose speeches and explanations are particularly well-received (such as Imam Qaradawi), but this does not make following their prescriptions more or less compulsory. 

Shiite Islam is organized in regional territories similar to how the Roman Catholic church has dioceses. Each region has an Ayatollah who directs proper belief of the Shiites in his area. All of the Mullahs and Imams within that area should follow his ruling unless they have a strong reason to object. Additionally, some Ayatollahs are seen to have more authority than other Ayatollahs because of their good reception and are elevated to being Supreme Ayatollahs. These Supreme Ayatollahs usually "govern" the Islam within a country. (Khamanei in Iran, Al-Sistani in Iraq, etc.). 

5. Roman religion was an offshoot of Greek religion. They essentially had the same gods, but they redefined the terms to accommodate their ideals of power. The Roman words for their greek gods added alot more power to the words that they used. Zeus, the king of all greek gods is simply the king of the gods. In the Roman context, Jupiter implied the fury and anger and strength under which the Roman armies fought.
