On the concrete, you will have to level it before you tile it. Self Leveling Concrete is the answer, the question is how much to use. Flatfloor, one of our regulars, will be along to help you. He makes the stuff, so he knows something about it.

Stone sealers are OK, but you can't count on them to protect your marble forever. Murphy's Law, as it applies to limited lifetime protection, says that your spill will happen as soon as the protection expires.

The marble can be used in any low-traffic area that is unlikely to see food or cleaning chemical spills. A front foyer is good, especioally if only company uses it. Around your fireplace is good, too, although I would think twice about using it on the hearth (scratches, etc). It can be used on walls, but not in the kitchen backsplash.
