A purge or backup traverses the complete directory structure - NSS will
cache as much of it as it has been configured to do.

Yes. Edit autoexec.bat to add that to the server.exe startup command.

The appropriate file is autoexec.bat "server.exe -u3910000000". Use the
tune memory carefully, you should check it during normal peak utilization.

Maybe - you need yto do it when it is under its "normal" peak load.

After unloading it the memory it had in use will be migrating between
pools - don't instantly reload the app, allow the server to settle down.
