I have no idea of how to write a Swedish 'u' phonetically, I don't know if it's possible to do it in English since the sound isn't in that language.
It isn't pronounced 'snoose' though. The English word for snus is snuff.

Snus (pronounced like "snoose") is a moist powder tobacco, some call it a kind of snuff. Snus is manufactured and mainly consumed in Sweden and Norway, where it is pronounced /ˈsnʉːs/.

Yes, that is how you say it. Like loose only with a "sn" instead of an "L"

ive heard that snus doesnt contain fiberglass, like american snuff does. so does snus not cut your lip up like snuff?

snus doesn't contain any harsh crap that the american stuff does. In sweden, they have to follow the same strict rules to make snus, as they do to make food. It's just basically tobacco, salt, and flavouring.

Plus the american stuff is fermented, whereas snus isn't

I've tried to use snus once, and i had a red mark the next day on the place i had it in the mouth. I think this was beacause i've had been drinking and had it there for too long. When you been drinking you should remove it after 10 minutes or something like that, but i think i had it there for almost an hour. :?
