In brief: Maybe

No - if they are in position and not causing a problem. Yes - if they are in position and causing a problem. Yes - if they are not in position , they will cause a problem if they are not now.
Waiting until later only makes a bad situation much worse.

In brief: Depends

It depends if the wisdom teeth are fully erupted and there is enough room for them. Impacted wisdom left untreated are prone to cyst formation.
See a dentist who performs 3rd molar extractions or an oral surgeon. They will do an evaluation , and make recommendations, while giving the pro;s and cons of the procedures

In brief: No absolutes.

Not everyone needs their wisdom teeth removed.
Some people do not have them. Some erupt normally with adequate space. However, some are in poor position that can damage other teeth, cause repeat infections , have caries, or cause pain or other problems. These wisdom teeth are evaluated and determined the risk or harm. Your dentist is your best to talk to.
