1Is this the ticket you mean: http://www.bahn.de/p/view/angebot/international/europaspezial/oesterreich.shtml?dbkanal_007=L01_S01_D001_KIN0014_abb-egl-esoesterreich_LZ01 (EUR 39 for 5 persons)?
I found it on the German language version of bahn.de under the menu option 'Angebotsberatung'. I didn't see anything similar under 'Offers' on the English language version, but a better search might deliver something.

2According to this discussion: http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g187309-i118-k5694571-Munich_to_Salzburg_Bayern_or_Freizeit_ticket-Munich_Bavaria.html
The Freizeit tickets are 30 euros/person. So the Bayern ticket would be much cheaper, if you can take the regional, as opposed to intercity trains, and can leave after 9AM.

4if I understand correctly, the Freizeit ticket offer has ceased to exist (last sunday, along with the timetable change, price hike etc.), it was indeed much dearer than the Bavaria ticket ( details in English ), which is perfectly suited for a group of 5, alas comes with the already mentioned downside of validity after 9am on weekdays (yet all day on weekends) and its restriction to regional trains (however includes all local transport within Bavaria, i.e. trams, busses, trains).

5A Bayern-Ticket costs €22 for one person and €4.00 for each additional person up to a total of five people traveling together. So €38.00 is the total you will pay for all five of you. It is only good on regional trains and is valid after 09:00 on weekdays and anytime on weekends. It also is good on the U-Bahn, S-Bahn, and buses in Munich on the day it is valid. You can travel all day anywhere in Bavaria (and to Salzburg which is a border city) and take as many rides as you want.

9What online ticket? It makes no sense to buy a Bayern Ticket in advance. You can buy it for the same price on spot from the ticket machines. If you buy it however online you don't have to change/validate it. You can just use the printout (in combination with the used ID = normally your credit card).
BahnCard is a yearly discount card. Not a ticket. An offer in first place interesting for residents. Or maybe for tourists doing quite a number of trips in Germany inside a short time span.
