One cannot have a theory (theorem) without proof. Theories are explanations (models with uses such as predicting on outcome of an experiment or event) for scientific laws, which only describe the phenomenon. Proof is anything that backs up a hypothesis. When a significant amount of proof is shown, the hypothesis becomes a theory due to it being accepting by the scientific community.

No. A corollary goes a little bit further than a theorem and, while most of the proof is based on the theorem, the extra bit needs additional proof.
