The way I am reading this, Atman can only break ice that is equal, but not below, Atman's strength. Is this correct?

That is correct. The strength of the ice needs to be exactly equal to Atman's strength in order for Atman to be able to break its subroutines.

That is correct. Datasucker, Parasite, and Ice Carver all affect the strength of ICE encountered, but Atman can only break strength equal to the power counters.

That's right.

And if you were asking because it occurred to you that simple 0 strength ice can be a real pain in the neck for a dedicated Atman deck, you are right again.

Imagine a 0 strength ice and an Ice Carver installed, making them -1. While playing Atman deck, things can't get worse when that happens.

Ice strength cannot go below 0, from what I remember.

I'm pretty sure it can, Wyrm says:
"a piece of ice with 0 or less strength."

Ice strength CAN go negative, however for all other cases (such as negative card costs) negative is treated the same as zero.

Negative is less than zero, which matters for Experiential Data and Corporate Troubleshooter and other things that can add strength to negative-strength ICE.
