It will go away: after the anesthesia effect is gone you should be fine. Let your doctor know about that. If it does not go away after anesthesia is gone call your doctor

Zero: almost never hurts. Sometimes depending of the specific situation may hurt but professionally done by a specialist there are less chances for pain

Need more info: I don't know your history. Was swelling before the root canal and during treatment and after root canal?

NO: Getting to the pulp is fast and takes seconds most of the times, the real challenge is to negotiate and clean and fill nicely the root canals

Get diagnosis done: If you had swelling for a week most likely came from an infected tooth. Sinus may be inflamed related to an infected tooth. My advice is to go to an endodontist first and have a cb ct scan. If there is no tooth infection then go to an ent.

Impossible to answer: I can not answer that question because there are so many reasons why this may be happening (bacterias on a dirty canal, overfilling of a canal, additional canals, fracture, isthmus between canals, a true cyst, foreign body reaction in case of overfill, recontamination from a bad filling or crown, etc, etc, etc. Please go to an endodontist asap for accurate diagnosis.

Smell?: I don't know what you mean with "horrible smell getting stronger" is that the smell of the temporary filling?

Almost always: If the cavity did not involve the walls and it was a narrow and deep cavity a crown is not needed, just a filling. Unfortunately almost always the walls are compromised and if this is the situation a crown must be done otherwise the tooth will crack in the future.

NO: Pain medication is not very effective sometimes especially in severe pain. Your dentist may increase the doses. However if severe pain does not subside you should go back asap to continue treatment.
