Yes, 3x3.

No, and don't intend to.

No.

Yes.

Ctrl + Arrows switches from one viewport to the next. When using the
mouse edgefliping does the job.

This is an ideal setup for me, don't need anything else.

This aspect is pretty much irrelevant for me.

Same as above, I don't really care either way.
