Only when that machine is in your network !

No. Webserver contains webcontainer.often webserver can understand Http ,then it will send the request to webcontainer where the jsp,servlet stay.

but some vender specific webcontainer act like webserver ,example tomcat.

Hope this Helps

Tomcat is a web server and a servlet container. I generally suggest to avoid the term "web container" since it is not widely used; you're likely to confuse people by using it.

The port on which the tomcat running , you can find it from server.xml (generally , its 8080) , from 'conf' directory !
