In brief: Yes

If a shallow burn it can leave color change and if deep 2nd degree or third degree burn it will leave a scar which can be improved by laser.

In brief: It can

It is less likely to leave a scar if it is properly and promptly treated so see a doctor if you suffer a chemical burn.

In brief: Possibly

The scarring that results from injury is related more to the depth of injury than the mechanism of injury i.
e. Acid vs hot water.
