"svn help resolved" says yes:

  Note: this subcommand does not semantically resolve conflicts or
  remove conflict markers; it merely removes the conflict-related
  artifact files and allows PATH to be committed again. It has been
  deprecated in favor of running 'svn resolve --accept working'.

I would suggest you not do that. That would allow any user to do anything to your repository (bypassing any security restrictions or hooks you may want to use) -- even delete the entire repository with one or two keystrokes (intentionally or accidentally). Set up svnserve or httpd instead. The book explains how.

Not that I know of. This explains why:

svn propdel svn:keywords myfile
svn ci -m "Turn off Id keyword" myfile
