The designer I have hired has never worked with adsense before. Here are my questions:
(1) Is there a way to let him experiment with the code placement, the look of the ads and all that, with it all being fake ads? I am very worried that he will click on the ad links and jeapordize my acct if it they are real.
(2) And can I create my adsense acct before I have any websites up?
(3) If there is a way to do fake ads (or, even if there isn't I suppose], do I have to give the designer access to my adsense acct while he is designing to play around with the look of the ad boxes in his design, and is there any risk in doing that (ie in giving him access to my adsense acct.) [I don't know the guy, I just hired him off the strengh of his portfolio from Craigslist.]
do I get my site up first and then join adsense, or join now while we are designing?
Get the site up first. Google will expect to be able to vet it before allowing you to join.
<added later> Once the site is up and approved you can set border colours, etc. It's something that you will have to play around with to discover what suits your site and what works in getting the clicks. </added>

On the adsense Adformats page, you can get JPG images of the adblocks for playing with in the design stage of your site.
This is a wasteful exercise. Dont do that. Most designers are not equiped with experience that needs an eye for adsense. Most of them dont even know how heatmaps works.
What you need is a dynamic data driven system with a admin control to enter topics and articles in rich text.
Instead, you can BUY adsense best placement site design and complete scripts for little price and good results. If you want details for this, pelase sticky me.
