In brief: Yes, if indicated
It is safe to do all these operations on the same eye if there is a medical reason to do so.
Your doctor, perhaps with the input from a retinal consultant, will explain the reasons the procedures are required, what is hoped to be accomplished, and the associated risks.

In brief: Yes/no
Depends on the situation.
No surgery is completely safe. If needed to repair and rehab the eye, you may not have much choice. Sounds like you may have erm (epi-retinal membrane). Take advice from your surgeon.
