Yes, or you move the current folders and/or copy them etc.

Not technically, it's all convention based on names, technically they
are directories as any other one.

That often depends on your product, environment, needed authentication
and authorization, what you want to merge where, shared code, what you
want and why etc. With more detailed description of you background,
e.g. why you don't want to use separate repos for your components, one
can help you much better. I personally prefer one repo per project,
with exceptions depending on things like assumed shared code, as may
be more efficient within one repo where things like efficient copies

Mit freundlichen Grüßen,
