I don't see any errors there; looks fine.

/opt/local/etc/macports. Yes, if you want to change the sources, then you edit sources.conf. sources.conf.default shows you what the defaults are; you should not edit .default files unless you want to confuse yourself later.

Or you can use "sudo" in front of your command-line editor to gain the necessary privileges (e.g. if you use vi, "sudo vi sources.conf"). Or you can use a GUI editor that prompts you for an admin account password when editing files you wouldn't otherwise be allowed to change; TextWrangler and TextMate both do this, for example.
