Yep. From yum.conf(1):
Must be a URL to the directory where the yum repository’s
‘repodata’ directory lives. Can be an http://, ftp:// or file://
URL. You can specify multiple URLs in one baseurl statement. The
best way to do this is like this:
name=Some name for this repository
If you list more than one baseurl= statement in a repository you
will find yum will ignore the earlier ones and probably act
bizarrely. Don’t do this, you’ve been warned.

Nope. You can specify the order in which it tries the various urls
with the failovermethod setting.

The man page says yes. I can't remember if I've ever tried this. I
used to just drop the mirrorlist and replace it with a baseurl of a
local or other fast mirror near me, but I've let the mirrorlist
setting in my F7 box and it's worked well for me so far.
