1) If the L3 switch is going to the do the inter-vlan routing and has multiple L2 access-layer switches connected to it then yes make it the STP root.


2) Yes, if you want to be able to route between vlans. I'm assuming you are talking about the L3 vlan interfaces on the L3 switch ?

1) Yes if all your access-layer switches are connecting to this L3 switch. STP root is usually given to the switch at the centre of your switch network and that's why the L3 switch that does inter-vlan routing is often chosen


2) Yes, each SVI needs an IP address
