It means that when you get your insurance you have to make sure that Honda is on the insurance details since they own the car and you are leasing it. They have probably also asked for minimum coverage - in the case of BMW it was $2M liability
Just provide this to your insurance company.

You just need to give the insurance company the details that Honda provided and they will do the rest.
They will need : date of lease, is the car brand new, demo, etc, value of the car, VIN, any modifications, Honda name and address (which Honda provided). Rest is standard insurance stuff i.e. dependent on your driving record

Honda Finance is asking that you get full coverage on the vehicle, comprehensive and collision coverage (max deductible $1000) with a minimum $1M liability coverage. This is to ensure that until the car is paid off, if anything were to happen, it'd be covered under insurance.

no, you only need to list the leinholder on the policy and conform to their requirements in regards to the liability and physical damage coverage's.

It's financed, not leased, so they don't own the car (but do have a lien on it). Still, they are just making sure their loan is covered in case of a total loss.

Sorry, yes. Its financed not leased and as you said the outcome is the same - the car company is making sure their loan is covered.
