1. what (if there is) are the 11 keys + a nose to activate this (edited its on page 2 )
The page ist still on the wayback machine ... but it did not really explain the "11 keys", but see for yourself:

Workbench 1.2 Messages

First hold down both Alts and both Shifts and press one of the following F keys.

F1: System Software: Carl, Neil & Kodiak
F2: Graphics Software: Dale, Bart, Jim & =RJ=
F3: QA: Jon, Bruce, Stan, Kim & Jerry F4: LG Support: Caryn, Dave, Victor, Terry, Cheryl & Nancy
F5: CBM software: Andy, Barry, Dave & Eric
F6: Pics: Sheryl & Jack
F7: Docs: Rick, Mitch, Peggy & Rob
F8: Chips: Jay, Akio, Glenn, Edwin, Mark & Dave
F9: HW: Dave, Bill, ChrisR & Josh
F10: Moral Support: Joe Pillow & The Dancing Fools
Now press both Alts, both shifts, press F1 and eject DF0: all at once and you'll see:
The Amiga, Born a Champion
Whilst holding this click the left mouse button on the screen to back gadget and re-insert the disk.
If you have WB 1.2 you'll see:

We made Amiga, They fucked it up
Commodore never commented on these messages but subtly changed it to the following in Workbench 1.3:
Still a Champion
Remember, you need Kickstart 1.2 to see use the key-sequences, but they are in the 1.3 Kickstart ROM.
It is also alleged to include these messages although these have not been tested:

The Amiga Wizards bring this power to you.
Brought to you by not a mere Wizard, but the Wizard Extraordinaire: Dale Luck
A second Easter egg has also been found in the WB1.x preferences. Thanks to Raymond Chen for finding this.
Go into the mouse preference screen, on the first screen, there are pictures of two mice, one to set the double-click speed and one to set the mouse speed. Click on each of the buttons on the mice 5 time in the following order.

1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4

Now select "Change printer" and scroll all the way up the list of possible printers, and then all the way down. Then the title bar of the preferences window changes to something like:

Congratulations =RJ=
The myth surrounding this is that RJ Michel became a father whilst the OS was in development.
The next message also uses the mouse image gadgets. Click on the mouse buttons in the following order:

3 2 4 2 4 3 2 2 3 2 4 2 4 3 2 2

Now select "Change printer", then select OK, then select "Reset Colors".

Read the message in the title bar.
