New plants by division

no, yes and yes

Most perennials of this type will divide any time you like as long as you don't let them dry out before they get established. Don't drown them though

Cut all the big leaves off, tat stops moisture loss. I just leave a few baby leaves, they soon grow more

I think you'd have to cut it right back to make it look good again, unless you remove each brown blade, one at a time

I should think they'll flower, they flower from seed in the first year.

Dianthus Antigua

That's a fancy cultivar, full of petals and probably no parts to create seed. If there is seed it won't come true.
