ConnectTimeout - maximum period of inactivity while TCP connection is
being negotiated. 

ConnectionRequestTimeout - maximum period of inactivity waiting on a
connection lease request. Used to be called connection manager timeout.

Please correct if my understanding is wrong.

See above.

One can set a desired protocol version directly on request message
instances. The parameter is completely superfluous.

Hence would like to make sure what is best practice to configure them. Should we set at all
below 3 places ?

1. IOReactorConfig defines global (client level) defaults used by the
I/O reactor when initializing new connections
2. No longer supported as of 4.0 GA
3. RequestConfig represents request level parameters. Socket and connect
timeout values, if non-zero, override those used by default.

Hope this helps
