u can fill any cracks with ri or bc - it doesnt need to be dry (i dont think!) before you can use fondant.

you can yes, but getting royal icing truly smooth is a talent that takes time, at least on real cake, i imagine on dummies too.
if you dont want to use fondant, and are experienced in buttercream, you can just do buttercream.

I cover dummies all the time. Sand the edges lightly, fill any large depressions with royal or buttercream. Let dry a few minutes. Spritz with a bit of water and then cover with fondant. Don't touch the covered dummies for a few hours so that a crust forms. If you get too excited and try to stack the cake too soon you will get a lot of finger dimples. The fondant will look better once it has dried.
