The copyright stamp can be overlaid with Photoshop or by using some tools like
PictureShark http://www.picture-shark.com/

If you want to register your copyright you need to contact your local copyright office for submission guidelines and the fees associsted with each registration.

SmugMug http://www.smugmug.com/ is a site that can do sales of the posted images.
It seems to have a good reputation, and lets you retain rights to the images.
Many of the other sites that do community image sales are royalty free based, which means you get a small payment for the image (if it sells) and you lose the rights to your own images.

On these sites you will be competing with thousands of others trying to sell hunderds of thousands of snapshots.
