I want to put my stock options into a retirement account.

Do I have to buy the stocks first, or can I just open an account and list the stock options? Which way would be the best as far as taxes are concerned?

What form of retirement account would be the best to use for this purpose?

Would this help me tax wise overall?

Would it protect the stocks from things like a lawsuit, bankruptcy, etc?

What if I cashed out the stocks within 5 years, 10 years or at retirement, what would happen as far as taxes for either stock options or actual stock?
