A: I don't see why not. You just set the crown molding upside down in the tool and cut a 45° angle (assuming 90° corners). Just remember that on inside corners, the bottom edge (top when it's upside down) is always longer.
A: This tool is not intended for a hand saw. Not sure how you would accomplish this with out another set of hands to hold the material down securely.
A: Unless you have a hand saw miter box large enough to hold the tool inside it, it would be very difficult to use a handsaw with this.

A: Yes, you will do your cuts with the bottom of the molding resting against the fence of your saw.
A: The crown molding is always placed in the jig with the bottom molding edge on top.
A: You have to put the crown molding in upside down. If you are doing inside corners, just remember that the bottom edge (top when upside down) is always longer. Opposite on outside corners. You can also use this if you are fitting the ends with a coping saw. Just cut is as though you were mitering it and then cope it similar to doing baseboards.
