Not necessarily. A number is also a multiple of itself.

No. Every non-zero whole number is a multiple of 1.

It has to be a whole number, or else every number would be a multiple of every other number.

Not in the normal usage of the words. Usually, a number is considered to be a multiple of another number only of there is an integer you can multiply the other number by in order to get the first number. If you allowed multiplication by non-integers, then every number would be a multiple of every other number except zero and the term "multiple" would be fairly useless. So in the normal way of speaking, 39 is not a multiple of 6 because there is no integer (whole number) you can multiply 6 by in order to get 39.

That's a multiple.

The smallest multiple of a natural number n, is 1xn, or the number itself. We do not count 0xn which of course would be zero for every natural number n.

The concepts of GCF and LCM are restricted to positive integers. Since zero is a multiple of every number, it would be the answer to every LCM problem, rendering the concept meaningless.
