Most of the minerals is got from the soil and the obvious way to absorb them from the soil is by the root hairs. This occurs with help of diffusion where are the soil has more concentration of minerals compared to the root hairs. With the help of transpirational pull the mineral is utilised by other parts.

Root hair absorbs the water and transfers to xylem. So I can say, that the root hair is the most important part of the plant.

Yes they contain pores and root hairs consists of vascular tissues so root hairs so they conduct water from soil.
