Make an Oscilloscope Using the SainSmart Mega2560 With the TFT LCD Shield and the 3.5 "color Touch Screen
Really nice idea. Thanks for sharing it. I had a thought when reading through it. Instead of modifying a drill bit, you might be able to use one of these, and adjust the size of the tube to accommodate the socket:

It certainly can be. It is called "blooming" in the industry. There are a number of techniques ("anti-blooming", deep trench isolation, etc) to reduce this effect that are built into image sensors, but it is impossible to eliminate completely.
You're not alone. Most people have no idea that the vast majority of image sensors on the market are CIS, not CCD. CIS leverages the standardized CMOS manufacturing process, which means that it is a lot less expensive to produce in mass production.
One correction. This camera is built from a Sony IMX219, which is a CMOS Image Sensor (CIS), not a CCD.
Yes, it is a parabolic curve. Please see this wiki link for an explanation:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Envelope_(mathematics)#Example_2
