Before you "host" your turn, exit the game and make a backup of the save game folder. Then reenter, host, and if you don't like it, exit again and copy the backup over the the one currently in the Doms2 game folder.
About the other two questions, I wouldn't know.

From Moxx-

"Hello, gonna sound stupid again...

It has been mentioned that you can initiate diplomatic relationships with other AI nations...

Uh, how?"

Did you ever get an answer to this question? I'd like to know myself

no relationship with Ai apart blood and battles ... I have noticed that the AI (often) declare war on me some turn before attacking ... actually I think that they declare war on me as soon as they come in touch with my provinces, but I'm not sure about that

good play
Liga

PS. the diplomatic part of the game is very nice ... that the reason why so many people prefer to play in MP or PBEM games

You can, however, gift any AI empire with money, gem, and items. This may not improve their opinion of you per say (I think it helps delaying war declaration, but can't confirm it), but do have its uses.

To quote Gandalf Parker:

Check the message menu. The AI might not improve its opinion of you (I dont know for sure) but you can send money, gems, items. Its a way to boost the nations you know you can beat. Let them beat the ones they can beat that you cant.
Its a deep and well balanced game.

Alliances are setup as a command in the .map file before starting a game. You can find it in the Map_Editing file in the docs directory of dominions2. All it really does is say X wont attack Y and vice versa.
