It might be fun to grow the vine as a climber for it's foliage, but unless you know the variety  it'll be difficult to know what conditions it needs to produce grapes - some are much better inside. 

The beech/lime or whatever tree it is will be a big tree - do you want a big tree? If you do then plant it, if you don't then chop it up and compost it.

There are types of persicaria which are garden plants, however I'm pretty sure the one you have is the one usually regarded as a weed.  It's often found on arable land and gardens.

Just in case its name worries you, although it is related, it is not Japanese Knotweed and there is no need to panic
