In IKEv2 (and now even in IKEv1), routes are installed by the daemon
itself, not the updown script. But you can disable the built-in route
installation using the mentioned option.

Yes, you can freely modify the updown script. Or you can define a
completely different script with the leftupdown ipsec.conf keyword.

If your configuration is more or less static, yes.
