should i need to buy confluence, even though i use JIRA licensed?

Yes, you will need to buy Confluence separately - it's a different system. JIRA is not a lot of good as a document repository. You can do it, but you have to set up some quite counter-intuitive stuff like "one document is held on one issue as an attachment and the issue contains metadata". Neither JIRA or Confluence are designed for document management though. Jira is an issue tracker. Confluence is at it's heart a wiki - it expects you to draw documents in as pages, not attachments, and its attachment management is aimed more at embedding media content or the odd attachment that has static data in it. It is NOT good with large documents, and things like versioning are very basic (there's a default limit of 10Mb in size for an attachment, you can increase it, but if you get too big, it will start to time out)

But on point 2 - have a look at Confluence Questions, and Jira service desk.
