Welcome to the game!
1 - Allied industry is mostly self sufficient / on auto pilot. You cant make many changes. You do need to use WITP tracker to identify where you have ongoing defficiencies and plan for them. Examples inlcude lack of fuel in australia, etc. Tracker will highlight those for you that you can do what you need to for optrimization. Otherwise, it is pretty idiot resistant and fixed. Be careful with the desired supply settings (supply reserve) in America early in the war. Also I suggest carefully deciding if to repair industry in China. you'll figure it all out within 60 game days.
2 - since fuel is used in industry, it does move like supply, but in general faster and further and even along minor roads. you also cannot hold reserves like in supply.
3 - Rangoon generates its own fuel and supply. In fact you should export both to India until the port is closed by force. You will be fine if you can hold it, but most players cannot hold Burma - its pretty tough, especially after Malaya falls. If Rangoon falls, you will have to make alternate supply arrangements for the rest of burma. Once Rangoon falls, you are effectively cut off from India, so be sure what forces you want to commit. It will be tough to get them back to India. Also, definately avoid getting boxed in at rangoon. If the Japs flank you successfully, it is suicide to try to hold on. This said, I always will make a major fight of at least Rangoon, including all my major air assets in the area. Lastly, it is advisable to set Mandalay or another interior Burma base to a high level of supply reserve. In this way when / if rangoon falls, you have a level of supply to conduct operations.
have fun with it.
