I think so. Things don't just happen for no reason, there's always one or more factors that contribute to an event occurring.

I think certain things are bound to happen - even if obstacles get put in the way, they'll happen in some other way.
This is merely an opinion I've gained from what I've seen happen - why is a very interesting question I've never thought about before. Would, "If it's meant to be, it's meant to be" be too cliche?

Here's my stance, described by Wikipedia:
"Causality (also referred to as 'causation', or 'cause and effect' is the agency or efficacy that connects one process (the cause) with another (the effect), where the first is understood to be partly responsible for the second."
It's also (partially) the reason why we can't time travel.

Yes. Everything happens because of the result of some combination of stochastic and deterministic processes.

No. Things just happen, nothing is meant to happen.
