1. Does this count as a bonus when time to withdrawl?

Not sure what you mean. When you take a distribution in retirement, it is counted and taxed as income. It doesn't matter whether the contribution was mandatory or voluntary. Since it comes from your existing salary instead of in addition to your salary, I would not call it a bonus in any sense.

2. Does this effect how much I can put into a 401(k)?

Yes, since it is a contribution from your salary, it counts against your maximum allowable contribution based on your salary.

3. Can this be converted into a Roth 401(k)?

I admittedly have little experience with Roth 401k accounts.

Who is afraid you have ventured beyond his comfort zone...
