No, it does not support PCF since Intersil firmware does not support it
in Host AP mode.

You can set beacon interval to about four seconds, but I'm not aware of
any mechanism of completely disabling beacon sending in Host AP mode.

Yes, you can send more or less arbitrary frames. However, in most cases
this does not really help that much..
