#1 - 'Severally' may well be right, though it sounds a little odd to me.
"Severally" as in the phrase "jointly and severally". Meaning separately to each person.
#3 - I thought of 'touching' originally, I guess it may be being used in a context I'm not aware of nowadays
Often used in conjunction with "on" or "upon" (touching upon, touching on) meaning "concerning." I guess it isn't used much these days.
