The extra point can always be attempted regardless of the time left on the clock regardless of the time left on the play clock.

And in the NFL, the officials actually require the PAT to be attempted, since playoff tiebreakers can sometimes come down to point differentials.

no, the kicker gets credited with the pat, there is no stat that credits the offense with the extra point

No. In sudden death overtime if one of the teams scores a TD, the extra point try is omitted.

No. The extra point is what a team attempts after scoring a touchdown.
