Answer: 
Yes, you will need to buy a tire inflation chuck for it. The same type that a filling station would have. Just be sure to set your OUTLET air pressure to the recommended pressure, if not, you could easily blow up your tire with dangerous outcomes to both you and the surrounding people.

Answer: 
In order to inflate tires you will need an air hose, fittings for both ends of hose, and an air chuck to fit the valve of your tires. A kit that includes these things and more is available.

Answer: 
That depends on what kind of spray gun you have, and how much air it requires at a given pressure. This compressor can produce a maximum of 2.0 or 2.6 SCFM @ 90lbs pressure. See what your spray gun requires. Many require more pressure than this compressor can handle. (SCFM stands for Standard Cubic Feet per Minute).
It should be fine for a finish nailer.
For not too much money you can upgrade to a larger

For not too much money you can upgrade to a larger capacity compressor (even in the Porter Cable pancake line). Always better to have too much power than too little. Larger compressors obviously weigh more though.
