BFAS

Well I'm no expert, but on the basis that I've never seen a BFA in a film it would suggest to me that they don't use BFA's in films.

Whilst not being anything near an expert/spotter (honest!), I believe there is a device fitted within the barrel. You can sometimes see it if the muzzle is pointing towards the camera, looks like a small tube. However I have only seen this on assault rifles/MGs, pistols may be different.

Pretty much correct.

The muzzle is threaded to take a screw in plug that has a small hole through it. This increases the back pressure sufficiently to operate the gas system while allowing some flash to come through and remaining unobtrusive. Film effects company sometimes use specially manufactured blank that generates more flash than normal just for effect.

This system also works with blowback weapons.
