In brief: Nothing

Bone will heal at its own rate.
Treatment involves aligning the broken ends so they heal straight. It can be done externally with a cast or fixator, or internally with surgical placement of pins, plates and rods. Which is done depends on many factors.

In brief: See Orthopedist

Most broken bones need immobilization, which often means a cast.
See the specialist.

yes, but certain fractures either due to their location of due to fracture displacement might need a surgical procedure to obtain the best result.
