In brief: Of course

Patients always may elect to have wisdom teeth removed with local anesthetic only.

In brief: Probably not

The oral surgeon will use the local anesthetic that he/she is accustomed to.
Not sure why it would make a difference to you as to which local anesthetic is used. But it can't hurt to ask.

In brief: Yes

Yes.
Some patients are allergic to certain local anesthetics. For best results, see a board certified oral surgeon - have the widest experience and widest range of techniques.
