Trademark Licensing

I am interested in licensing my trademark to be able to sell usage of my brand, collect a license fee and royalties on services provided.    
 
Fact: My state do not require franchise registration but govern according to business opportunity laws.  
 
My Questions:  
 
1) My firm provides technical services.  Is licensing my Trademark brand legal?  
2) How is this different from franchising?  
3) Is there any federal paperwork I must file, other than registering my trademark with the USPTO?  
4) Any guidelines to watch out for to ensure that my trademark registration is clearly deferentiated from a franchise?

I hope I’m not being too nitpicking but I’m having a little trouble understanding what you mean by being “able to sell usage of my brand.”  A trademark license is your branded products or services through your licensee. That’s why the licensee’s use inures to your goodwill.  What you’re looking to accomplish, here, sounds a little murky, and may indeed even be invoking franchise laws.  Don’t have the foggiest idea what you mean by “licensing my trademark brand” (sounds like you have a service mark, no?).  Tell you how to be sure, though.  Get an attorney on the hook.  You’ll be glad for it later on.
