In brief: Sometimes

Sometimes. Usually better not to take a chance.
See oral surgeon ASAP.

In brief: Unless by trauma ?

If due to trauma it is understandable but if it just occurred, for known reason, i would be seeing my dentist to have my jaw checked.

In brief: Sometimes

It is possible if the dislocation is not too severe.
Otherwise u will need to seek treatment.

In brief: Yes and No

If it is very minor most can reset a dislocated jaw, but a more severe dislocated jaw usually needs treatment from a doctor. I posit if you have a severe dislocated jaw the pain will dictate you to the doctor to have it treated.
