Ant-Man is based on the Marvel comic book of the same name created by Stan Lee, Jack Kirby and Larry Lieber.

Yes, all Marvel Studios films made from 2008 on are part of a single universe, one of the many parallel story arcs set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The original Ant-Man, Henry Pym, was a long-time member of the Avengers, under the names Giant-Man, Goliath, and Yellowjacket. Scott Lang was the second person to don the mantel of Ant-Man and was also a member of the Avengers. This film actually marks the final entry in Marvel's Phase Two and sets up Captain America: Civil War (2016), which will start Phase Three.

Both Hank Pym and Scott Lang will be in the film. Edgar Wright stated that an early draft of the script included Pym being the Ant-Man of the 60s and Lang being the Ant-Man of the present.

Scott Lang is the second person to don the Ant-Man helmet after Dr. Hank Pym. Lang, a burglar, completed his abandoned electrical engineering degree while in prison and was quickly hired by Stark Industries. Left with no choice, he returned to his old trade to save the life of his sick daughter, Cassie. He stole the Ant-Man helmet and used it to free the only scientist that could cure Cassie's illness. Lang returned the helmet to Pym, who agreed to train him as the new Ant-Man. Lang was created by David Michelinie (creator of Venom and writer of the "Demon in a Bottle" storyline in the Iron Man comics) and artist John Byrne. He first appeared in The Avengers #181 (March 1979) and Marvel Premiere #47 (April 1979). In the film, he is a skilled thief and was released from prison during the first act. Dr. Pym was looking for a proteg to take up the Ant-Man mantle, and tricked Scott Lang into stealing the suit after studying him for a few months. Pym then offers Lang a job involving a heist and agrees to train him to become the new Ant-Man.

Yes, there is both a mid-credits scene and a post-credits scene. The mid-credits scene features certain main characters returning and teasing the future roles they'll play, and the stinger after the credits is a huge scene that includes even more key characters and sets up Captain America: Civil War. You can read more details here and here.

Stan Lee can be seen towards the end of the movie as a bartender when Luis is telling a story about how Falcon is looking for the Ant-Man.

After sounding the alarm to evacuate the building, the protocol would most likely involve transferring the Yellowjacket out of the building as well. How the protagonists plan to prevent security from staying in the building to continue searching for the missing Yellowjacket before the bombs go off is left unexplored due to Darren altering the situation.
