4.1.

The Menu Item Typeset using LaTeX is not available

Not every backend supports every option. Current version supports LATEX output for Maxima, Qalculate! and Sage backends.

4.2.

I have installed Sage/Maxima, but the appropriate backend does not appear.

One possible explanation is that Cantor did not correctly detect the location. Go to the SettingsConfigure this application... dialog and change the Path to the appropriate application.

What a peculiar name - what does it have to do with mathematics?

Cantor is named after the German mathematician Georg Cantor, the creator of set theory.
