Generalized Questions on Alfresco

I have been put on a project to seek out and understand the tools Alfresco offers.
Recently, I was asked some pointed questions which I did not have the answer.
I am hoping to find answers or direction with this post.

1) If a document is uploaded for review, can the original document remain untouched or unmarked while comments and reviews are made to the document?

2) Will PowerPoint and Excel documents open up natively within Alfreso.

3) If I am working on a document within Alfresco and the Alfresco application crashes, would the document I had been working on save locally to my computer system so that I can go back and upload to Alfresco again?

4) If there any kind of polling system?

5) I work within an administrative hierarchy, like most companies. Let's say that you have a layout that looks something like this:
Center > Office > Division > Branch1/Branch2/Branch3
Is there a way that I can set up a site that incorporates all 6 of these working areas? Or would I have to make 6 individual sites and set permissions accordingly?

I appreciate any help with these questions, thank you.
