Las dataset to raster interpolation

I am writing my bachelor thesis. It contains a comparison of the different interpolation methods which ArcGIS uses to create surfaces. But there are still two questions left. They relate to the cell assignment type in Binning:

1. Nearest Neighbour: Means nearest all the values within the cell or the cells around the searched cell? Is this the same for IDW? So it also consideres the values around the searched cell, or? 

2. IDW: I read in the manual that the default setting for the power parameter is 2, but you could also change it to another number. The funktion LAS Dataset to Raster does not offer the option to change that value. Does it mean that it always is 2?
