    No.  They are IT guys, not SDEs.  It's like the difference between a building contractor and an architect.  Somebody in IT can fix your internet connection or determine if your hard drive is failing.

    Not necessarily. It depends on the type of support they specialise in.

    No I'm a computer support specialist I've never written a single line of code in my life

    Not really. Probably the most "coding" they would do is to write scripts in PowerShell or BASH or in some other scripting language for very specific task.Tech support people troubleshoot and fix PCs and other tech devices. They don't usually write programs.
