    Americans usually pronounce it "bin" as in "trash bin."

    Yes, "me too" is fine. More formal would be, "It's nice to meet you, too" or "Likewise."

     

    Neither; it's a long vowel sound.

    Been, bean, clean, aquamarine all have the same long "ee" sound (to you, a double Italian "ii" sound).

    "Me too" is OK, but it's sometimes used as a joke: "It's nice to meet me, too". Just stick with "Nice to meet you, too".
