It's been suggested that Billy would go down for the murders now that he owns the murder car, but I don't think that's the case. As far as we can see, Billy is the only cook working at Big Kay's Burgers. Most (if not all) of the murders happen when he's working. Sheriff Quaid even goes to Big Kay's to question Billy about the murders right after Skank and Gutterboy are killed, and Billy is there working through (presumably) the lunch rush. Someone would have noticed if the only cook was missing long enough to kill our two favorite gang members.
About the hacking visuals: maybe I'm giving the movie too much credit, but I never thought the crazy cyber buildings or video game nature of the hacking battle were literal depictions of what was happening. I thought we were supposed to be seeing the code through the characters' eyes. For the average person, watching lines of code scroll down a screen would be dull...so it seemed to me like those visualizations were supposed to help the audience feel the excitement that the characters felt behind their keyboards; to see a world of possibilities instead of indecipherable strings of characters. This was reinforced for me by the film clips intercut with Dade's scenes; clearly he's not really seeing those clips. When he looks down on the city and sees circuit boards and whatnot, that's not literally what his eyes are seeing. All of these are attempts to put us in the headspace of a hacker. Granted, if that was the intent, it fell short...and again, I might be being too optimistic here.
The word is definitely glamour! And the idea of a glamour isn't specific to vampires; it's pretty prevalent in fairy folklore and literature. The Craft also displays some glamouring which ends up being kind of plot relevant. I was a little surprised at the confusion over glamouring in this episode, especially when Lennon says that's just a Twilight thing. She later referenced something that happens several seasons deep into True Blood - a vampire series that consistently portrays glamouring, starting from episode one.
