The front brake calipers are not adjustable. The brake assembly is designed to be self-adjusting. That's why it's really important to ensure all parts, locating pins, slides, etc are clean and properly lubricated.

This will make the brake distribution uneven between the front wheels and can lead to shaking or pulsing when applying the brakes.
Depends. Cars will have one caliper per wheel. High performance motorcycles may have two calipers on the front. Average motorcycles, one per wheel. Bicycles, one per wheel.
