-If you have some sort of giant Emu yes.

-If you're trying to cheat the system and get extra attacks without the extra limbs no.

Generally talon attacks are what is used for a primary attack from the legs. If its a claw attack there is generally a special way of being able to use them, see the pounce universal monster rule and the stats for a Bullette.

Generally, you need to have two feet on the ground to attack. You can get around this by flying or by getting the rake special ability which grants you extra damage.

This is not really specified in the rules, but as far as I'm aware is universal on creatures in the bestiary... and in the real world.

By raw I would say yes.

Claws (Ex)

An eidolon has a pair of vicious claws at the end of its limbs, giving it two claw attacks. These attacks are primary attacks. The claws deal 1d4 points of damage (1d6 if Large, 1d8 if Huge). The eidolon must have the limbs evolution to take this evolution. This evolution can only be applied to the limbs (legs) evolution onceThis evolution can be selected more than once, but the eidolon must possess an equal number of the limbs evolution.

yes,I think so

Eidolons have many strange things
for example

Each pair of legs increases the eidolon's base speed by 10 feet
The eidolon gains a fly speed equal to its base speed

you have more legs,you flying faster
