Only way to know for sure is to try it. It doesn't depend on your Baseband etc AFAIK rather the MPN code.

No idea, ascenia posted about it somewhere a few days back, just try region away and see. It won't hurt your phone.

ok I will follow your advise.

This is the first time I'm using a major android phone so I gotta learn how to root through YouTube and then I'll buy the region unlock app.

I guess I will have to reset my phone to make sure that everything works perfect. I don't have anything saved in my phone so I think it won't matter for me to reset.

If possible if you do not mind and if I'm not asking for too much please let me know any app name of YYouTube video which has got the best and easy explanation on how to root the note 3. I find a lot of videos but not sure which is the most recent and best method.

Before you root, have a read around check out about KNOX etc and how it affects you. - Once you have decided if rooting is OK, head over to CF-Autoroot thread here on XDA by Chainfire, then download Odin 3.07 and follow the guides. Safer following XDA guides.

Everywhere else it means manufacturer part number, I would speculate it means same here?
If you're rooted, why not just try it. If you want to see what's locked get es file explorer and go /system/csc
customer.xml has list of network locks, after running region lock away new customer .XML will have no locks, original is backed up in backup file, if you need to restore it.

Hey pete

I'm not rooted.

I'm trying to learn on how to root.

Once rooted I'm gonna install regional lock app.

yeah, you need to read about Knox flag and how this could affect you in a future, since there is a good chance rooting will trip Knox flag and it's permanent, no way to reset it yet. Beside delavega there is also Kingo rooting method, much easier, but there were some questions about data security etc. and I'm not sure where it all stands now. My only advice would be read as much as you can and don't rush, you could even brick your phone if you mess up.
