    Absolutely yes. If you play one instrument you know musical notes and chords and how they work. If you pick up another instrument you soon figure out where the notes are and you can play that.

    If it's in the same family. The clarinet and the flute would be easier to learn than the clarinet and the guitar.

    In general, yes. There's lots about music theory that translates from one instrument to another.

    Yes, definitely. Especially if you know how to read sheet music.
