You can't have the same tag as both a revision tag and a branch tag in
the same file, so you need to remove the revision tag and then add the
branch tag.  You can do that in two steps using tag -d followed by tag
-b, or in one step by using tag -F -b.

Probably, but it's simpler to use tag.

Some commands allow you to specify both -r and -D to get a specific date
on a branch, but tag isn't one of them (although it probably will be
in the not too distant future).  Both checkout and update do allow it,
however, so you can checkout or update a working directory to the
appropriate revisions and then use tag to tag them.
