If I move cautiously (on Easy terrain, say) this is a "free action" and doesn't incur a MAP. But does it use up an action slot?

Eg, I declare 1 action (intending to move a short distance and shoot). When it's my turn do I move 5m for free and take my shot, or do I move 5m and then wait 'til it's my turn again to take the shot?

I would interpret R&E p. 101 and 80 to mean that a character can take his shot and move 5m simultaneously/on the same turn in a round.

Since the move in that sort of terrain is a free action, it comes with shooting.

Cautious move on easy terrain is a free action (means no MAP).
Your caracter can shot then move / move and shoot / shoot during move (as you wish) without -1D penalty.
