It will work with anything 10.2 and above, I'd recommend 11.1 as the minimum, although later
versions may have important security fixes. Adobe recommends using 13 security wise. [1]

It will work with any version from 10.2 and up. You can select the version of FP when installing
via the installer or modify the flex configuration files to an earlier version.

I'd use the latest for performance and bug fixes ie 4.13

IMO No but I'm sort of biased as would most people on this list be :-)
