3)

Why does a Nasi bring a Sa'ir?

1.

Moshav Zekenim, citing R. Eliezer of Garmaiza: The Shevatim (Yosef's brothers) sinned through a goat (they put its blood on Yosef's cloak - Bereishis 37:31). The Gematriya of Nasi (361) equals that of Shevatim, therefore he atones with a goat.

4)

"Korbano" is extra. What do we learn from it?

1.

Moshav Zekenim citing the Rosh: He should bring a big, fat Korban, since every day he eats fattened animals. His table should not be full, and Hashem's is empty (i.e. is less honored than his).
