The movie should be displayed at the native resolution of the monitor no matter what the resolution of the source material may be. How are you sending the source material to the TV from your PC or vice versa? Is it a direct connection (HMDI or DP) or are you streaming between?

Unless you have a 4K monitor and 4K source material for your PC, it's not going to display as intended and will display only in the native resolution of the monitor being used. Additionally, you'll need a DVI-D cable, HMDI as mentioned, or a DP connection to your monitor and the same to your TV. Period.

Yes, I do believe that would work. As before, the source material must be 4K and the display the same to show it as intended. Otherwise, it's only going to display at the native resolution of whatever the display showing it is set to do regardless of the 4k source. There's no getting around that.

You can set your monitor and TV to whatever priority you wish though W10 will only function as you mentioned as far as apps go. As for dragging it between the two, that's a bit of a gray area. Still, the resolution of the recorded source material is what will dictate if it plays correctly: playing 4k on 1080p is only going to display as 1080p; playing 1080p on 4K may be upconverted depending on what's playing the source or it may not. Blu-Ray players will either up or down convert based on the connected device's display ability. I can't speak to the software you'd be using and you'd need to look into the literature to be sure it converts.
