3. Do I need to seal tile or porcelain?

It's important to realize that there are two parts of a tile floor...the tile and the grout. Grout needs to be sealed. It's naturally porous and will stain easily. Most installers of tile floors do not seal them, because grout has to cure first. It's something you should do to keep your grout looking it's best. As a bonus, sealed grout is much easier to keep clean.

We can replace sealer with a grout additive, that can be used when mixing grouts and water (For example Stain Blocker from Custom) is done to strengthen tile or grout's defenses against dirt, spills, and erosion of grout.

Not all tile needs to be sealed.If your tile is ceramic or porcelain, it probably won't need to be sealed. There are some exceptions to this, If your tile is stone (slate, marble, granite, travertine, etc.) then it will need to be sealed.
