No.  RTFM.

Yes.  RTFM.

Aside: I'm slowly drifting from the 'F' standing for Fine, to
       something else...

The --whatever options are command line options.  I guess you are
using MS for running your gpg, so I'm not 100% sure how to set up your
gpg to always use the --homedir flag.  In Un*x I would use an alias

Please try to find the gpg manual on your system and have a read for
the other exciting configuration options.  :-)
