Yes, they are aliases for the same operation.  The "ost_name" or
"ost_uuid" is of the form {fsname}-OSTnnnn, like "testfs-OST0003" or
similar (the trailing "_UUID" isn't required).  The number is in hex, as
listed by "lfs df" or "lfs osts"s.

No, just on the MGS.  This will permanently disable the OST on the MDS and
all clients.

See above.
