Very little that I've found.  You can learn a bit about it by looking at its WEB-INF/web.xml
file.

Correct.

I would be interested.  Note that there's only one file to edit: conf/server.xml.

It's all software...

That's not necessary - the conf/Catalina/[host]/... files are already created automatically
as webapps are deployed under the new <Host>.  Only conf/server.xml needs to be updated.

No, Tomcat only reads server.xml during startup.  Whatever update mechanism is used must insure
that the file is never in an unparsable state (e.g., don't update in place, instead create
a new file and then rename it).
