Both GPG and GPG2 use the same ~/.gnupg directory.

1. I don't understand this question.
2. You said that you are on Linux Mint, which uses apt, which requires
gpg1, so you might get warnings when trying to remove it. I recommend
just keeping both.
3. As I said above, both use ~/.gnupg. If you want to use gpg2 with
Enigmail, open Enigmail preferences and on basic tab you should see gpg
location. Check the "override with" box and write (or browse) /usr/bin/gpg2.
