Yes. The embedded version is essentially Superserver in a DLL. What
you can't do with embedded, is have multiple applications/processes
connecting to the same database file.

As large as your hard-drive(or volume) permits. And, that might depend
on the OS file system, because as an example with FAT-32 will be
limited to the 4GB file size. You won't see that limit with NTFS,
because it is a few TBs.

No. I have a client with an 11GB single file database.
