You could say unu karoton for one carrot and iom da karoto for some carrot if you wanted to make the distinction.

Mi havas karoton could be either.

What a lumpy transaction! "I have a carrot in the sandwich. " I have a mental image of a large carrot stuck between two slices of bread. This translation is correct but not really English as spoken by a native speaker. " I have carrot (or some carrot) in the sandwich. " would be the normal way of describing an amount of substance in a sandwich.

Why the emphasis is in the first syllable in the word "sandviĉo"? Must not it be on last but one syllable?

The emphasis is on the last-but-one syllable, yes. That is where I hear it, too.

There is a little emphasis on "sand-" in that recording but it seems to me that the one on "-viĉ-" is slightly stronger, as it should be.

The emphasis is on the penultimate syllable. It should aound like sandviiiiĉo. The emphasis is always always always on the penultimate. For example: Estas, mAnĝas, forgEsas, kAptas. Hope that helps.
