What is an Eclair?

An eclair is a French pastry made from choux dough filled with cream or custard and topped with chocolate icing.

How do I keep my crust soft and not crunchy hard?

When you make the crust, do not overmix it. When you press it into the pan, do not press really hard. You want to press it in the pan, although not put too much force on it.

Are there any variations that I can implement into this recipe?

Certainly! You could use Nilla Wafers for the crust, or Ladyfinger Cookies. You could use Chocolate pudding in place of the vanilla pudding. Make your own Whipped topping mix instead of using store-bought.
