Do colleges focus more on regualar or weighted GPA? My GPA is 3.7 so far, but my weighted is 4.7.

It might depend on the college. I've heard that some break your weighted GPA down to the unweighted numbers.

I know a lot of people stress 4.0s, but I've taken so many more challenging courses than those with 4.0s. How much will colleges take this into account? Also, things like winning piano composition contests, how weighty is that on a resume?

I'm sure you're fine....especially if you have a bunch of APs. I'm not sure tho, cuz I'm stuck in the middle of applying too.
