Not quite right.
To have an inverse, it would have to be bijective.
Instead, try this (Wikipedia's version):
Given posets X,Y, a function f:X > Y is called an order embedding if (x <= y iff f(x) <= f(y)).

Yes.
>Definition 4. Order isomorphism is a surjective order embedding.
Yes, that's Wiki's definition.
