In brief: If no pain then ok
If you are not having any pain, numbness tingling or weakness in your arms or legs, there should not be any problem.

In brief: Yes
typically, once the symptoms are minimal, weight training is allowed, with cautious increases in weight.

In brief: Okay
I think you are asking if you can weight train if you have cervical spondylosis.
If you use good technique and the spondylosis is not causing you nerve or spinal cord problems (you are having mainly neck stiffness and discomfort), then you can probably do whatever is comfortable. If you have numbness, tingling, weakness, arm pain, unsteady walking, consult a spine doctor.
