It isn't hard at all, just smooth into the indentations before the curves and it kinda naturally falls into place. I don't use much buttercream underneath the fondant though, otherwise it moves around way too much.

I'd say it's the easiest shape to cover.

Not a problem & I do put a full layer of BC under the fondant, you just have to be careful.

I put a full layer under the fondant, too. Just take a tool and make the indents first, then the rest will follow easily.

Yes, very easy as the shape itself takes cake of most of the pleats. I like a full coating of buttercream underneath, totally chilled.
