Yes. Here is how it is implemented:
No, it does not! I am Greek and I should know. phosphorus is composite word combining the noun φως = light and the verb φέρρω = to bring or to bear. Also, it is used only for the chemical element. The term for Lucifer is Εοσφόρος from έος = first light or dawning and φέρρω = to bring.
While it is true that Greeks would identify certain Gods with their own, it has no bearing on your argument, since you start from a faulty premise. Also, the bolding of the suffix -us in your OP for the names of Horus, Jesus and Venus. does not prove as you might think any similarity between them. It's just a suffix and a Latin one at that; the equivalent in Greek would be -os. The only anomaly in there is Venus, because usually the suffix -us in Latin signifies the male while Venus was certainly female.
