1. When the form is submitted the total will be calculated as part of the form action and it's value will be stored as the value of that total field. I'm not sure what you are trying to do, but changing the total using jQuery isn't going to change it when the form is submitted. The total that gets stored is calculated on the server side, not the client side.
The client side display is to give the user instant feedback but because client side scripts can be manipulated it can't be trusted and that is why the total is recalculated as part of the form processing on the server.
2. Gravity Forms currently has no confirmation functionality. So what you want to do where you have a confirmation screen before they actually submit the form itself isn't currently possible with the existing feature set.
A confirmation step is a feature we plan on adding, however it's much more complex than it sounds. We frequently get asked why we don't just add this feature or that, but we have to think it through from many different angles.
Because forms can be extremely large, consisting of multiple pages of fields, we need to take that into account with how we present the confirmation for such a form. It is a feature we plan on adding but only after we tackle the issues we are aware of and can implement it in such a way that it brings true value to a variety of use cases.
