In brief: Here are some...

Headache and facial pain are the common symptoms of sinusitis, which may be acute or chronic, and usually is related with viral infection.
Despite being a common illness, seek evaluation and counseling timely if symptoms are worsening or intolerable, especially with fever; don't wait.

In brief: Yes

Depends upon which sinus is involved, but maxillary over one or both cheeks, frontal over forehead, sphenoid may refer to apex of skull.
If you have an active infection, need to take antibiotics.
