You can use any web server supported by the operating system that
hosts the files. As long as the web server software has read access to
the files. Believe it or not, my local CentOS repository is hosted on

It's up to you. If you think you'll need the packages that are in the
additional repositories, go for it. But I wouldn't bother. You can
still configure clients to use your local mirror for base/update and
public mirrors for anything else they might need.
