T1-11 siding/ nails or screws?

I will be replacing the T1-11 siding on my house this fall.
The guy that inspected my home told me to predrill and use screws instead of nails. What kind of screws should I use? Should I cover the screw holes with wood putty before staining?
I realize the importance of applying primer to all sides and the edges. I also understand the importance of caulking around windows, doors, etc.
Should caulking be added to the overlapping portion of each sheet as well?
Is there a flashing I should add above doors and windows? I plan on trimming the windows and doors with 1x2's.
Is there a website out there that would help me with my questions?
