Never use a "b". If anything, use ss if you can't click the symbol on the screen.

But you should learn how to type it - it will make using the German that you learn much easier, as well as quicker to search for words in online dictionaries: http://duolingo.wikia.com/wiki/Guide_to_keyboard_layouts_and_input_methods

Absolutely. These days, there's no good reason not to use the proper German letters. There's a simple solution for pretty much any device.

For what it's worth, "Weib" is actually an outdated and now offensive word for woman.
