Not at the closing. You need to discuss this at the time of loan application, or be prepared to do parts of the application process over again. Do NOT wait till closing.

You cannot pay the credit rating bureaus to improve your credit rating. However, you can improve your credit rating by paying your bills on time and paying the full required amount due. If you can put additional money towards paying off your mortgage, car loan, student loan or credit cards, this can also help.

Not necessarily or at all. Bad credit comes from having bills that one does not pay or always paying late such as car payments or rent. One can obtain good credit from always paying bills as well as paying them ontime.

If the bills were overdue and you are making payments as the result of being 'dunned,' and the bills are not yet paid in full, it will reflect on your credit report.

Pay your bills, develop a history of paying your bills on time and in full. Repairing your credit doesn't happen overnight. Companies want to have assurances that you are a good risk. Paying a few bills doesn't convince anyone. It takes time.

It is called pro-rating the bills. EX: If the seller has already paid $2400 in property taxes for the year and you are closing November 1, then you would owe him a pro-rated share of the tax bill in the amount of $400 for 2 months.
