No. The trunk/tags/branches folders are _inside_ the repository, so you use a
normal SVN client (like TSVN) to create them. Open the repository browser,
type in the URL of the repository and then right-click on the root in order
to create the folders there.

No, relocate is used in order to inform a working copy that its repository has
changed location. What you want is a normal 'switch'.

No! The 'tags' folder is on the same level as 'trunk'! However, since the two
things trunk/tags/branches and project are independent of each other, you can
also switch them around, so you have these two common layouts:



This is mostly a matter of taste.

There is an option to create a tag from a working copy in the context menu, so
you don't need to use the repo browser.
