Yes. In fact, you can have a different one for each language
supported by each mailing list.

It all depends on where your machine puts the Mailman stuff. By
default, that's normally put into /usr/local/mailman, but that
default may not be applicable to your installation.

It could be. Does your machine put all the Mailman stuff under
/mailman? If so, then you're probably correct.

have also figured out the answer to this question.
