No sorry. You can copy them or leave in their original location, but no

Yes. If unavailable will look at filesystem date.

Leaving them to their original location. If you deselect "Copy pictures
to photo folder" on import it will just add pictures to the catalog,
using the location where they are at import.

I strongly doubt you will be able to import them in one shot. Sadly
f-spot suffers some memory leaks, and it has been reported that
importing MANY pictures at a time will fail.
You should do import smaller directory each time.
