You could use AJAX.

There can be multiple submit buttons per form but only the callback of
the clicked one is evaluated.

The checkbox can have a different callback than the button. If you hit
the button, first the checkbox callback will be evaluated, then the
button callback.

You could make the checkbox sumit on change (not implemented right now
but should be simple). This way the form will be submitted when the
checkbox value is changed.

Yes. Note that you can not nest forms.
