1. Drag a rectangular frame in the render view and then hit render region.

2. There are couple of particle types that can be rendered with the software renderer. You could also use the particle instancer to replace the particles with some real geometry.

3. Check the hardware render attributes. You can improve the quality by enabling for example line smoothing and multi-pass rendering...

Yes, only a couple of the particle types are capable of being rendered by the normal renderer (indicated by a s/w by the name, I believe. Stands for SoftWare). For the others, you have to use the hardware renderer and than composite them into your scene.
