Great, welcome to the project.

Yes, see MAINTAINERS in the root OE directory.

Yes, please do. There are two ways:
1) the old way: create patch files and post to the bugzilla
2) the better way: expose a git repo somewhere with your changes and
ask for review. Once there are reviewed, someone with OE push access
can easily merge them for you
OE push access is typically granted after a person has made some
contributions and seems to have a handle on how OE works.

This means testing, fixing, extending support. I hope this would be benefit enough to endure our newbie questions while we are getting known with the build system.
Excellent, contributions are appreciated.
