Yes, shouldn't be a problem as long as the door edging isn't removed totally.

Yes they can be trimmed.A lot of door frames are out of upright/square and its unusual for a door to go straight in.They often need cutting/planing in some way or other.

Yes 33" is a standard door size and almost always needs shaving to fit an existing liner.

You can only cut that much off a door if the door is soild, as some doors only have 5mm each side for shaping, you can get 32 inch doors so you might have to alter the frames
