No as it is mostly hardware property, not user preference.

Yes: EVIOCSREP (kbdrate or similar). Note that X ignores kernel
autorepeat and implements its own.

I have no idea what that is, so apparently no ;)

To adjust mapping of the input device itself one should use 'setkeycode'
or some other utility issuing EVIOCGKEYCODE/EVIOCSKEYCODE ioctls.

loadkeys adjusts higher level keymap used by the console.

No, that is the task for higher layers (console, X, etc...).
