no - you do not need to replace bootloader files or repartition in odin - doing so could damage your device

you only need to include pda phone(modem) & csc

yes because you are flashing stock rom and kernel firmware - like I said - it will be like you switched the phone on for the first time

please search if you want more information
there are plenty of guides in the general section and on xda as a whole
