Not necessarily. The only time that the angle bisector would bisect the opposite side is if you were bisecting the vertex angle of an isosceles triangle.

It depends on what you mean by bisect. All rectangles have diagonals that bisect the other one. Only certain rectangles (Squares) have diagonals that bisect its vertex, the ninety degree angle.

It means to bisect an angle with a compass and a straight edge or rule.

In the same way that you bisect an acute triangle. Alternatively, you could extend one of the rays of the obtuse angle so that you have an acute angle. Bisect that angle and then draw a perpendicular to the bisector of the acute angle through the vertex.

Yes, you can bisect an angle using the paper folding technique.
