> What sort of algorithm is used for the vc-relax?
For vc-relax calculations INPUT_PW states that there
are 2 possible dynamics you can use:
1) 'damp-pr': damped (Beeman) dynamics of the
Parrinello-Raman extended lagrangian
2) 'damp-w': damped (Beeman) dynamics of the new
Wentzcovitch extended lagrangian

Yes, I think so. You can read more in Marx & Hutter's
textbook (see www.cpmd.org). For more references see
refman.tex in /Doc.
