Google for "H.222.0" but please understand that this is not an 
easy-to-read document. (I am nearly certain it will not help 
you at all if look at it.)

Maybe I misunderstand you but this is certainly not the 
"official site of MPEG".

MPEG-TS files do not have a header but ffmpeg -i yourfile 
should tell you about the audio and video in your stream.

Sorry, I don't understand this question. Consider reading 
the wikipedia article about the MPEG-2 collection of 
specifications, maybe that explains some of your questions.
