In brief: Yes

That would be the ideal situation for this type of IUD.
One should expect breakthrough bleeding for three weeks to three months after the Mirena (levonorgestrel) is placed, but that should eventually resolve.

In brief: Possibly

I believed that depends upon the setting in which the DVT occurred.
If there was no underlying hypercoagulable state and there has been a complete hematology analysis, then it's likely safe. On the other hand, if you don't plan more children you may want to discuss endometrial ablation with your GYN. Assuming your uterus is normal, endometrial biopsy was normal and pelvic US was also normal.
