Assuming your DNS record is updated appropriately, no. That's part of
the point of DNS.

Nothing in your configuration. Any externals pointing to URL with the
old domain name will need to be updated with the new one.

When the hostname changes, they'll have to svn switch --relocate their
working copies. If you use HTTPS or SSH w/ keys, you may have to
re-accept certificates or regenerate keypairs. Neither of these are
specific to Subversion, but rather as a result of the security
features of HTTPS/SSH.
