For example, does Arceus-Bug get the 20% power boost for his Bug type attacks?

Yes, elemental plates boost the power of moves of the same type. So if Arceus bug used a bug type move it would be powered up.

Yes.

However, it will also increase the attack power of moves of the Plate's type used by any Pokémon holding it by 20%.
