It is right to use that on centos too. In fact the mock in epel uses
centos mirrors for packages.

There are few differences between Centos and RHEL, the one which is
visible is the difference between server and desktop which is not in
centos. But the updates of RHEL are in Centos.

It should. I personally don't have a RHEL subscription and when I find a
bug which I think is also in RHEL I fill it in the RHEL bugzilla.

Also to find files/provides and so on, metadata on rpmfind or the like
for centos can be used.
