Can you give me the links which show that small vortices which are rotating in a larger vortex, are spinning clockwise when they are orbiting-rotating clockwise around the large vortex?
Not really. It's not the strongest analogy; I just haven;t thought of anything else.

Question 3: All the planets are rotating around the sun towards the same direction? (this question has nothing to do with what the direction of their spin is).
They are, yes.

Though not all bodies in the Solar System are. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_notable_asteroids#Retrograde_and_highly-inclined" have orbits that are greater than 90 degrees from the Solar plane (i.e they revolve clockwise).

Then where did you notice that this actually happens? (beside the planets)
