TMX import settings

The "Process Trados TMX" import option makes no sense when importing TMs from DVX into MemoQ, and could even fail. It was designed for TMX files produced by recent versions of Trados 2007. Enabling the other three probably won't do any harm (neither to content nor to leverage). Disabling the last two might result in loss of markup information (tags, formatting). I'm not sure about the second, but it has probably no effect. I would recommend disable, enable, enable, enable.
Domain vs Subject: there is no difference between the two. Both are text fields you can fill with any information you like. If you are curious what the original designer meant, Domain is probably "broader" than Subject. Still I would just recommend using them the way that best suits you.
Export/import of TMs containing fields: Since the field structures are different between DVX and MemoQ, and neither tool offers "optimized" TMX import or export for the other tool, for best results you might need to edit your TMX files in a text editor when migrating from one tool to the other. Otherwise, some field content will be lost. And you are right, MemoQ does not allow the user to set up custom descriptive fields for TMs (or TBs).
When importing terminology content from CSV into a MemoQ TB, you can specify which column goes into which MemoQ field. So filling the built-in MemoQ TB fields from your CSV files shouldn't be very difficult in my opinion.
