A one-way permutation is just a one-way function in which the function is a permutation (id est, a bijective function). Every OWP is a OWF, the converse is not true. IND-CPA security is a security notion specifically related to encryption schemes. OWF and OWP are not encryption schemes, hence they cannot be said "IND-CPA secure"; however, one can construct ...

You have clarified the question as asking about whether replacing ShiftRows with a random byte permutation would strengthen AES against differential attacks. It would not. ShiftRows and MixColumns were carefully selected to work in tandem, such that every byte affects every other byte in the state within just two rounds. MixColumns ensures that every ...

I assume that you mean the S-box. The answer is NO! Randomly chosen S-boxes are not good choices for differential and linear cryptanalysis. When Biham and Shamir presented differential attacks on DES, one of the things that they showed was that if you replace the S-boxes in DES with randomly chosen ones, then the differential attack becomes much more ...
