Moderators are are from avast there are others that are avast Team, those from different departments like the virus labs that also post and some of those will also be evangelists.

An evangelist (and its different forms) is someone with more than 300 posts, it is just a forum status and means nothing other than that. They are more than likely to be avast users just like yourself and not avast staff.

See image, it is slightly dated now, from May this year.

There is a certain amount of automation to analysis (there has to be with the volumes of new malware), but a computer can run a virtual environment isolated from the main computer.

For another take on this read this blog entry by one of the avast virus labs team for an example of what can be done with unknown/difficult samples, http://blog.avast.com/2010/06/29/defense-center-and-a-piece-of-luck/.
