  1. Yes, but you might want to consider that hard SIP phones are generally better than soft ones, and you might also want to consider what happens with regard to calling the emergency services, particularly during a fire.

  2. Hire a consultant, attend a course, or read and understand asteriskdocs.org/.

  3. As for (2). You should not be starting until you know the answer to basic questions, like this, about your existing system.
