yes but they can be quite restricting and as long as you are not doing anything amazingly stupid you would be fine without one

If you are racing you need a neck brace. If you are just riding for fun it's not compulsory but strongly advised.

protect your head, neck/spine, knees, in that order. id say these are pretty essential as injuries here will affect the rest of your life. then optional elbows, shins, hands. these areas can still be serious but they are more likely to heal fully.

I'm not sure. They can be extremely expensive. I'd say you be hard pressed to find one under £100.
