You can increase the number of threads (processes on Linux) with
the "-t" Zope startup option upto 7. When you need further
increases, you must change the number of ZODB connections (code change).

It takes it when it needs more.

When your pages are mostly static, you put a SQUID before Zope.
Otherwise, you can look at Zope RAM Cachemanager.

I do not think so.
