Not yet. Several users have stated the intention of setting something like
that up, and we have a domain (krita2.org and krita2d.org, too, I think), but
the work hasn't been done yet.
But it's no problem for you to ask user-type questions on this mailing list,
you are quite welcome.

Not by default, but you can go the settings/configure shortcuts dialog, search
for "duplicate" and assign any free shortcut you like

No, I'm afraid not.

Nope, we haven't implemented that either. It should be pretty simple, but
right now we're focussing on getting Krita 2.0 basically stable and ready for
a release, so we won't be adding new features. If you like, it would be
helpful if you'd entered a wish-list bug item at bugs.kde.org with as much
information and links as you can give, like equivalent functionality in other
apps, how to reach it and so on.
