C-b PageUp and C-b PageDown will also enter copy mode. If you add

        set mouse on

to your ~/.tmux.conf, you can use the mouse scroll wheel for that.

If i recall that correctly, tmux supports being your login shell.
If you _always_ want to have tmux running, you can use chsh -s
/usr/bin/tmux to change your shell to it. I just have

        st -e /bin/sh -c "tmux attach"

in my "gimme a shell" binding. My ~/.tmux.conf contains

        new-session -s g

which causes tmux to create a new session named 'g' if I try to
attach and it's not already running.
