The Amish

I'm working on a project about the Amish and I came across some interesting data, but couldn't find any explanations ... That's why I have some questions:

- When do the Amish men when straw hats and when the black ones?
- Why do they oppose buttons and belts?
- Why do the Old Order oppose the curtains and carpets?
- Is there a difference between shunning and excommunication?

If anyone happens to know the answers to these, I'd be really grateful! :)
