We have created a new user group.
Should this new user group has default minimum rights or has this new user

Unless rights are assigned to the group in $wgGroupPermissions, the group
will not confer any rights to its members.
Is there a sort of cascade of rights : an anonymous
autoconfirmed", and then "user emailconfirmed" with default rights of
"user" group: edit, move, etc ... A user defined as belonging to a
"incubators" group by administrator in "user right management" page
special page), will have "user" group rights + "incubators" rights ?
Users are in some number of groups, some implied ('*' for everyone,
for all accounts, 'autoconfirmed' for accounts that have matched the
autoconfirmed criteria) and perhaps some explcit ('sysop', etc).
The user ends up with the union of rights conferred by all their groups.
As a result, the right "move" from a namespace-one to an other
namespace-two, is not allowed to the user who became
"incubators" group has the right to "play" in the namespace.
We did this creation of new user group across the definition of a new
$wgNamespaceProtection[NS_INCUB] = array( 'incub-edit' ); # right
'incub-edit" is required to "play" in INCUB namespace
$wgGroupPermissions['incubators']['incub-edit'] = true; #
"incub-edit" right which give the right to "play" in INCUB space
Not sure offhand how $wgNamespaceProtection works, though that sounds
