A pinch runner is a substitute for a runner that is already on base. If player A is on second base and the manager decides to replace player A with player B, player B would be called a pinch runner.

Yes. Pinch runners can be used if a certain player is slow or if the batter is the catcher, and needs to get his/her gear on. The next time at bat the batter must stay in the lineup and bat when it is his/her turn. This is the same thing for a pinch batter.
The Pinch Runner Memorandum was created in 1976.
Total bases is not relevant with pinch runners. Total bases is only relevant with batters and is a statistical category used to measure a baseball player's effectiveness at the plate. So the pinch runner would be credited with 0 total bases. However, the run scored would be credited to the pinch runner.
