First of all, think about using .NET 3.5 — this is a very good .NET version already; and you can do development with VS2008.

What, still need 4.5 and don't want to use Express? Consider open-source alternatives:[^],[^],[^],[^].

You can develop for Linux and other platforms, too, and execute your code under Mono:[^],[^].

No, you can't do that.
You can use .NET 4.5 only with Visual Studio 2012 (both VS 2012 for Windows Desktop and VS 2012 for Windows 8).

Here I've two links if you want to download VS 2012:
Download VS 2012 for Windows 8[^]
Download VS 2012 for Windows Desktop[^]
Right, a 5.
And also, there are open-source IDE -- please see my answer.
