Replicate data between domain controllers

I like to confirm replication process between  2 domain controllers

Correct me if I am wrong, or , just answer correct if it is correct . thx.

1) 2 domain controllers within SAME site will replicate among themselve automtically WITHOUT
    any manual configuration ( in Server 2000/2003/2008 networks ) ???? Am I right ???

2) 2 domain controllers from 2 difference sites , have to go through manual configuration in  
    order for these 2 DCs to replicate their data to each other ??/  Am I right ???

3) There are no such primary domain controller  and backup domain controller in Server
    2003/2008 network , all DCs are considered as "master / primary " in the SAME site  ??
    Am I Right ???

1) So, what  DC's data can be FULLY  replicated among the DCs within same forest
    ( replicate between 2 difference domain   ??

2) How about parent /child domain , can DC in parent domain replicate partial or complete Active
    Directory data to DC in child domain ????
    ( just need to answer , partial data , or , full data replication betwen parent / child domain )

3) Do Global Catalog server need to be there for parent / child domain replication ??
   ( just need to answer need GC ,or. do not need GC in parent / child domain replication )
 

4) I assume 2 domain Controllers  within SAME domain , will replicate entire Group Policy plus Active
    Directory Objects between these 2 DCs ==> Am I right ?
What data are you looking to replicate between the domains or what are you tring to do, maybe this will help better answer your question.

Take a look at the link I posted before, I think that answers most of these.

Just need to confirm the following statement before I close the question.

The domain controller from child domain CANNOT replicate OUs , Users ,  GPOs and Shared  Files data to the other domain controller in the parent domain.. Am I right ?? Please confirm .
OUs, Users, GPOs do not replicate between domains.
I am not sure what you mean by Shared Files.
