No. Crosswalk is embedded into your Cordova app.apk. No dependent APK will be needed to install
your app with Crosswalk.

Please refer to our wiki https://crosswalk-project.org/#wiki/crosswalk-cordova-android for

No. it supports both ARM and x86.

It is a good idea. We track this feature as https://crosswalk-project.org/jira/browse/XWALK-515.
If people vote for this, we would like to implement it.
