In brief: Deviated septum

nasal irrigation is safe with a deviated septum but there may be difficulty with irrigating on the side of the deviation.
if you have symptoms of obstruction, have your nose evaluated by a board certified otolaryngologist,

In brief: Yes

Yes, should not be a problem. If the nasal septum causes symptom, see ENT doc for evaluation.
If the outside is also crooked, and you desire correction, see facial plastic surgeon
