I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

1: Databases need a password file so, both but the original should already have one.

2: Both sides but the sources database should have one.  just copy them over to the destination.

3:  You connect to the TARGET which is the source database and use the AUXILIARY  keyword to connect to the destination.

There seems to be a decent example here:
