Registry keys, text files, etc. There are many different ways to save configuration settings.

I would recommend encryption. You can encrypt strings with RC4 via _StringEncrypt() - check it out in the help file. Store the encrypted passwords and the key separately (or leave the key embedded in your script, but AutoIt scripts are easily decompiled).

OK, I will encrypt the passwords and their key.

How can I prevent decompiling my scripts by other?

You can't. You can use UPX and Obfuscator to compress and obfuscate the code. This will make it harder to work with, but you can't stop someone from decompiling an AutoIt script.

Yes, but nothing is impossible.
