No. It is supported, and a common occurrence. Feel free to read the

Yes. you will need to edit mm_cfg.py and modify the default host and url
values; then you will have to modify the existing host and url values in
your current lists - use the ~mailman/bin/fix_url.py utility (read that
file for examples, see the archives for other examples)
Note: Read ~mailman/Mailman/Defaults.py and copy any and all sections
that you want to modify over to mm_cfg.py

Yes. You will need to change a setting in your mm_cfg.py file:
# When set, the listinfo and admin overviews of lists
# on the machine will be confined to only those lists
# whose web_page_url configuration option host is
# included within the URL by which the page is visited.
# Only those "on the virtual host". If unset, then all
# advertised (i.e. public) lists are included in the
# VIRTUAL_HOST_OVERVIEW = 1
VIRTUAL_HOST_OVERVIEW = 0
