I think you'll have to assign the PA-500 interface in L2 mode, and then assign the IP address on the workstation/server.

You'll get a commit error if you assign two IP addresses in L3 mode since they will overlap.

Yep, just configure the interfaces as L2 and then create a new VLAN interface in the same VLAN as the L2 interfaces.  That VLAN interface is where you will configure the IP address.

Yes it does. See doc https://live.paloaltonetworks.com/docs/DOC-1618 for config details
