    That looks like a F major to me...with an added B
    B would be a flattened 5th or a sharpened 4th (or 11th)

    either way - pretty dissonant, probably an error unless you're working on some...

    This all looks correct, well done!

    Why is the G string played as an A#?



    A = 1st fret (A#, the 5th)
    E = 3rd fret (G, the 3rd)
    C = 3rd fret (D#, the root)
    G = open (G, another third)

    E 3rd fret = G
    C 2nd fret = D
    G open = G

    A
    E
    C#
    A

    Yes, or simply play G as normal and then use your little finger to fret the extra note to change it to Em.
