In brief: Edward's works
The edward's procedure or supercrestal fiberotomy was described in 1970 and assists in retaining problematic, rotated teeth.
This small procedure is usually only accomplished for 1 or 2 teeth. The need, the process, and the risk/benefits should be discussed with your orthodontic and periodontal specialist.

In brief: Keep teeth straight
It can be a good idea if your teeth had to move a lot to be straightened.
A retainer will be necessary as well.

In brief: Yes good idea
Fibers between the teeth are elastic in nature.
With braces you can close the spaces and wear retainer but you need to remove cause of spaces.
