The name of a transition is even more likely to change than the ID. I'm not sure there's any mileage in using the name over the ID. Also, Atlassian have issues logged to enable translations of names, so a single transition, with one ID could end up with several different names. I know the API lets you get a name for an ID, but I don't think it's got anything for doing the reverse. I'm afraid your code might have to read the entire workflow for each transition and pull out a name, and hope it matches.
Yes, I think it's possible, but I can't see an API method to do it - you'll have to loop through all the transitions in the workflow until you find one with a matching name.
(And deal with "no transition found because the name has changed" - I'd just fail gracefully and silently, but it does mean you'll need to explain this to users)
