Should the /boot partition should be as large as possible to allow the kernel
optimal memory to run in?

Should the /usr partition be as large as possible to accommodate
installed applications?

Can Linux mount a fat 32 filesystem?

What partition(s) will Linux mount automatically even in safe mode?

> /boot
should be as small as possible, for example 10MB are enough (except you plan to have dozents of kernels parallel)

> /usr
should be large, 'cause most additional application install there, for example in /usr/local, or in /opt

> fat32
Yes it can mount (vfat)

> mount automatically
don't understand what you mean, but it mounts "automatically" anything needed (/), anything specified in /etc/fstab, anything requested by automounter
