In brief: No!

Maybe a smidgeon! usually not significant pain, since it can be done under local or general anesthesia.
More important issue is why do you have the stone? Ask the doctor.

In brief: Depends

It depends on how it is removed.
Using minimally invasive techniques, the pain should not be too bad.
