    No.  A stoplight (when it's red) means STOP.  A yield sign means you don't necessarily have to stop, you can proceed with caution, after looking to make sure someone isn't coming.

    No.  One is a sign and the other has electric lights inside.

    Of course!  DUH!!  Look up "California Stop."

    The only difference is if a cop is sitting there for the purpose of writing tickets.

    No, it means stop and in doing so you must also yield the right of way. A yield sign does not require a full stop unless necessary, but you still must still yield if traffic is present that is not required to yield to you.

      There are some stoplights that are aided by cameras ready to flash red light runners and mail them that $400-500 ticket. Maybe a transit cop or CHP could be waiting for you to "run the red light".
