Basically if playing an AD dps champ, if you get Last Whisper can you ignore ArPen marks and get Flat Damage or Damage per Level marks instead? with the 40% off do you need anymore ArPen?

I would go with attack speed instead at that point.
Armor Pen runes would devalue the 40% from LW as that gets calculated after flat Armor pen
Damage is easy to acquire through blood thirster, manamune, or whatever.

Maldreds isn't all that awesome unless you're crit dependent. The magic damage is situational and dependent on them having weak MR...which they will build if your team has any AP characters.

The issue at the core is that there aren't many AS items that grant good damage as well so you really only want one AS item...which isn't always enough so building AS marks instead is probably your best bet since 2 AS items might be overkill. Damage though, you can always use more.

Really depends. Like rickless said, Panth and Ashe would like the AD runes. Trynd and GP would like Crit Chance runes. A jungler might prefer IAS runes.

If you have a couple of champs you seem to like more than others, pick the set that works best for them - they may not be optimal for other physical champs, but they'll be useful for most.
