When I press 'a' in lynx I got following prompt:

Save D)ocument or L)ink to bookmark file or C)ancel? (d,l,c):

So I just press 'd'

No, URLs which are already visited and are in lynx cache will instead of URL
links show title of linked document.

No, but you can build lynx with  --enable-addrlist-page and instead of 'l'
press 'A'

A           ADDRLIST      like LIST command, but always shows the links' URLs
