Here is how I used to figure these things out for myself.

Do an export of the user that owns the database link, or create a user and a dummy link and export that.  Then do an import with show=y and the command to recreate the link should be in the output.  There is probably an undocumented syntax to put the encrypted password back in.

Use this:
SELECT DBMS_METADATA.GET_DDL('DB_LINK', db_link, '{owner}') FROM all_db_links;

Typically, yes; but practically, there are some bugs with extracting all DB_Links in one statement. It is better to extract DB_Links schema by schema by login to the DB_LINKS owner and then execute the following statement, then switch to the next schema and execute the statement again and so on..

SELECT DBMS_METADATA.get_ddl ('DB_LINK', db_link)
  FROM user_db_links;
