Mitochondria produce ATP which the ribosomes need to carry out protein synthesis and most enzymes are proteins. So yes.

Yes, but so too does the nucleus, ER, golgi apparatus... It's a slightly odd question.

Mitochondria produces ATP, the most important energy supplier exists in metabolic processes and ribosomes are connecting the amino acids to protein chains and enzymes are one of many another kinds of proteins. But without ATP, ribosomes can't work and not only those. So yes, they help them, especially mitochondria!

Yep, good point. strictly speaking ATP is not responsible for making enzymes directly, as it is not the main function. But everything is connected with this energy transfer in a way, so yeah it is a bit odd.
