AFS currently only supports DES. So with AFS today you have no choice. What this
means is the with the AFS principal in AD you must specify with ktpass -DesOnly
Only the service ticket for AFS will use DES, so it does not effect the rest of AD.

Depends on what data you put in AFS, and is the AFS network traffic sniffable
You would need to do a risk assessment of you situation.

Not today, but there are AFS mods in development to fix this.
