You just need to write back standard mbr program code. Bootrec can do that.

Inactive code outside the mbr has no effect, if there are no references to it.

Yes, if the application is marked as large address aware, otherwise it stops at 2GB for compatibility reasons.

Indirectly it can use more, if you take file cache etc. into account.
