It's building the studs out so that they will meet up with the tub flange. The issue you will face is that the wall will no longer be even with the rest. You'll need to fur the whole wall or be creative where the tile ends and the drywall starts.

It's hard to tell by your pics but it appears the wall with the drain is short. Moving the tub in the other direction will make furring easier but complicate lining up the drain.

It's the practice of building the stud wall out with wood. You will need to rip a stud to a 1 and 3/16 inch width and nail it up.

Yep a table saw would be the best way. If you do not have one some outlet centers will do it for you for a small fee.

I asked at Lowes if they could cut 2x4 like that and they said against company policy.
