Right-click a file (or group of files), select TSVN ->Properties. You
can apply them on all new files added/imported via the auto-props
section of your Subversion client config.

Should it be done for all files? No, only plain-text, and only those
which will not be corrupted or otherwise changed in a material way by
changing EOL style. This setting doesn't guarantee portability, it
really just makes it easier to work on various client OSes with text
editors which may not understand EOL markers used by other OSes (e.g.,
Notepad doesn't understand UNIX EOLs).

Depends upon your requirements.

SVN uses the property svn:ignore to ignore files in directories, in
addition to the global-ignores section of your Subversion config file.
What items you decide to ignore really are up to you - my settings
won't map to your workspace.
