1. Yes it can be paid.

2. ZAKAAT FITRA is paid in exchange of food item which is normally consumed by the people of the city or the country in general, and there must be a
variety of items from cheap to expensive, such as dates for example, so if a
person would like to pay extre then he can always choose the items which are
expensive and affordable to him.
Any thing above ZAKAAT ALFITRA should not be given with the intention of
ZAKAAT ALFITRAH, but with the intention of general Charity "SADQA".

3. No he doesn't , and informing him is not an obligation as long as he is a
deserving recipient
