Does anyone know...
Will there be an option to takeoff and land from carriers in Dogfight mode and will the arrestor cables work?
And will we be able to set the carriers as a home base?

Yes there will be that option. One of the movies that have been released shows aircraft landing on a carrier that is in DF mode.

The only issue is that the ship is static (as with all ships in DF mode).

"There were still others who would fire a quick burst, then quickly break off; or watch somebody else hammer an airplane, then, when the German was already windmilling and going down, dive in and fire a quick burst, then try to share credit for the kill. I had a guy do that to me. Believe me, he never did it again."

You might have to ask some of those who seem to have a pirated copy of a pre-release versionof PF...Seems two blokes on HL the other night had one

Or they could have been pulling some folk's chains. I find it unlikely anyone outside of 1C's permission has a copy of PF.

I hope you can take off of carriers in multiplayer. I hate having to taxi and turn onto the runway, you are a sitting duck until you get airborn, and thats faster if you only have to take off instead of taxi, line up, and then take off.

well just going straight doesn't work in all maps/airfields.

This one time I did that, I couldn't see one of FB's horizontal paperthin tree slice forrests and wound up going straight into it. other times buildings are in the way. I mostly go straight, but it is a pain not to be able to take off normally and straight at the same time.
