No. That's why it is called "zone" transfer. :)

Again no. (See previous thread on your request to serve two zone files
for the same zone in the one view; same rules apply here.)

That depends a bit on your setup. Judicious use of views with ACLs
could help you solve your problem regarding the zone transfers, but you
may feel more comfortable with separate servers.
