1. No. Faux binding is just leaving the undyed edge of a top exposed, which requires the guitar be built that way.
2. ... what? No! Real binding is a strip of material attached to the edge of the guitar.
3. Lots. Hundreds.
Current Gear:
LTD MH-400 with Gotoh GE1996T (EMG 85/60)
PRS SE Custom 24 (Suhr SSH+/SSV)
Ibanez RG3120 Prestige (Dimarzio Titans)
Squier Vintage Modified 70s Jazz V
Audient iD22 interface
Peavey Revalver 4, UAD Friedman BE100/DS40
Adam S3A monitors

Ask the guy...?
No idea how much it would cost, except it'd probably be quite a lot.


I'd reckon it would be easier to put real binding on than carefully taking off the finish around the edge.
Rout a small channel, then glue in a binding strip. As long as you're careful and mask off the surrounding paintwork, it'd probably work.

You can't really put faux binding on a guitar... faux binding is this:

Basically, if you want faux binding, you'll have to refinish the guitar.
