Public Editable Feature Layers

Hi, i have a multi-part question.


1.) how can I create an editable feature layer in arcgis online? can I do it with a public account?

2.) can I allow anyone viewing the map the ability to add points to this feature layer (not just people with arcgis online accounts, but anyone viewing the map)? 

3.) Could this map be embedded in a website-- edited by the public within the embed?


Basically I'm trying to figure out if there's a way to embed a map on a website that allows people who visit the website to add events with information to the map in the form of points. With google maps, people have to have a google account to do this, but I would like to be able to allow anyone to do this (someone would check the map every day for cleanup).


I read that there are editable feature layers out there with ArcGIS online (ie for the birding community to add pictures/sightings/etc to a map). Wondering how to execute this, possibly without ArcGIS desktop.
