pourable putty and other rookie questions.

Reading old posts I see reference to pourable putty. Is this what I see on TV? (american hot rod, american chopper) It is definetly not the regular bondo I have used. It seems much more "liquid" and easy to spread. It would appear to be perfect for a skim layer over my pitted body panels (28 ford).
1. If so, what do I ask for? Also, any tips on application?
2. I will be stripping, cleaning the body a little at a time. It would be convenient to do a skim coat directly to the bare metal and leave it till I finish the whole car (4 to 6 weeks total) and then have it primered. It would be dry, but not humidity controlled. Is this OK?
3. Also see references to a DA sander? What's that and why are they so great?
Thanks.
