5) Yes but when you weld it brings the carbon to the surface so you can get some mild rust bit north like carbon steel you can passivated with acid that eats the carbon off the surface again also if you get any carbon steel in contact with your stainless steel it can cause it to rust 316 is more resistant to rust
