First Hi and Welcome to the Board.
You have brought up some very great questions. First,and foremost it sounds like you are doing a terrific job. It is scary to think about your little one being left out or feeling bad because he is the only one being changed. But, it may be the incentive he needs to get out of those diapers. My DS, who is 7 now, went to daycare when he was small, and once he 'graduated' into the 3 years class, he saw all the older kids going potty and basically decided to start using the potty on his own. Have you tried to put undies on him? Maybe make a small progression from naked to undies. And, in all honesty, I would ditch the diapers. Make it a big deal....Have a 'ditch the diaper' party. :o). There will be plenty of accidents at first, but just be nonchalant about the situation. Say to him "oops looks like you went in your undies, next time you need to put it in the potty." He will start being receptive with time.
I hope this makes sense. Hang in there, he'll get the hang of it.
