Why did Percy Jackson go to the underworld?

Chiron tells Percy that he must travel to the entrance of the Underworld in Los Angeles (by land, since Zeus would blast him out of the sky if he tried to fly), confront Hades, and return the master bolt to Olympus before the solstice passes in order to prevent a war between the gods.

Thereof, how did Percy Jackson get to the underworld?

In The Lightning Thief, the first book of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, Percy must take a cross-country trip from Long Island, New York to Los Angeles, California to enter the underworld. From there, they are able to trick Cerberus and find their way into the Underworld to meet with Hades.

Secondly, what actually happens when Percy takes the lightning bolt to Zeus? Zeus opened his palm. The lightning bolt flew into it. As he closed his fist, the metallic points flared with electricity, until he was holding what looked more like the classic thunderbolt, a twenty-foot javelin of arcing, hissing energy that made the hairs on my scalp rise.

Also to know is, why did Percy ask Chiron about the underworld?

He says: "The beginnings of an idea - a tiny, hopeful fire - started forming in my mind." What does he mean? He hopes that his mother is not really dead. If she is in the Underworld, he could go there and save her.
