no. The layer is the whole pass. You could remove them one at a time in
this case with Short-Undo.

Just the second half. If you do 2 long-undo's you would get both. (easier
if you use MIDI so you don't have to actually hold the button down and can
send that undo command directly.)

no, in that case there would not be a crossfade. I guess it is possible
a pop to happen then, although usually you have some other audio going
underneath the overdub so it is not so likely to be audible.
