LJ parameters listed in [atomtypes] in ffnonbonded.itp are used in conjunction
with the combination rules of the force field to determine these interactions.
If interactions change depending upon the atoms involved, one can specify
[nonbond_params] for each interaction pair that supersede the combination rules
for those atom pairs. That way, the parameters for e.g. S can be different when
interacting with different atoms.
I can't comment on points 2 and 3.
