There are several approaches to the problem.  Here are some links to get you
started.

Not typically.  You may want to make modifications to properties of your
formatting objects (writing-mode, for example) based upon the language, thus
the transformation responsible for generating FO will want to make choices
about attribute sets or properties as well as content.  That is, it is
possible to centralize this task in one stylesheet to ease maintenance.
