1) that would be hard to say upfront, assuming that it is over cable and not satellite it depends on the technician to assess the conduit and the details to work out if it can be done that way. If possible that is typically what they do but hard to say based on information online. 2) It will have a little utility box on the wall outside, it will be separate from the Telstra copper one but about the same sort of size. 3) Inside it will just have a Foxtel wall plate. (picture will be below)
If you check your address at http://tel.st/bundles does it show HFC/Cable internet or only ADSL? because the cable for Foxtel is the same as cable internet and typically if it only shows ADSL you will not get Foxtel over cable.
Also as they are no longer rolling out cable (nbn are adding a few extra houses in at some areas but for the most part), it is pretty much only people who already have the cable that will get cable Foxtel, everyone else will keep getting via satellite.
The wall plate for the Foxtel will have a cable that runs from that to the IQ3 box, and then the power cable and a HDMI from that to the TV. The IQ3 box is internet compatible, it doesn't need the internet to be able to be used for basic viewing but the internet connection gives you access to extended features like being able to view shows on demand, restart shows, catch up. It is advised for the full experience that internet connection is a good idea.
