1. See https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Specifying+Field+Behaviour#SpecifyingFieldBehaviour-Makingafieldrequiredoroptional

2. You can do it o a project by project basis. Create different field configurations

3. No

Any more information how this can be done on a per project basis for a non custom field such as component or fixVersion?
