    yes its setup the same way as the pc transfer. You hook up your vita using the usb cable and use content manager on the vita.

    I'm sure you could, but since the game is linked to a specific account, you wouldn't be able to play it.

    You can still game share with one other device. However, since the vita is linked to ONE account only, you can theoretically do it, but my method hasn't been tried yet.

    The way I proposed it could be done is this:

    Buy the item on Acount A. Don't install it or transfer it.
    Log into Acount B on the PS3.
    Log into Acount B on the Vita, and try to transfer the game that way.

    I don't know if it'll work like that, but that's how I'd try it.
