1. For front, just remove the caliper from the carrier and undo brake line. For the rear it's the same thing, except you also need to remove the e-brake cable.

2. Not sure why you would want to. But I'm sure you can do it with the vacuum method on the bleed valves of the calipers.

3. Google search this.

Simple. Remove the e-brake cable clip on the caliper, make sure e-brake is disengaged, and just remove it.
