Well first I guess Google :P 

Run 'uname -a' and that might give you a hint if the kernel isn't custom.

Also you could try the following:

'cat /etc/*version'
'cat /etc/debian_version'
'lsb_release -a:
'cat /etc/redhat-release'
'cat /etc/fedora-release'

If none of those commands help, then it might be something more exotic - but let's try the easy ones first.

A PID is a process id - every process has one, and they are assigned depending on when they run.

The logrotate question might be better answered once you know the version of linux that's running.
