Hi,
You would need an LNB with enough outputs, 2 for Sky+, 1 for a normal box. That makes a total of 2+1+2=5. You need an Octo LNB.

I suggest you contact Sky if you want 3 boxes in total, as whilst it is possible to make the connections easily enough, I don't know if Sky facilitate it.

Yes it would, if you wish to retain your existing two digiboxes, then you will need an octo LNB (and a telephone connection), but if you are replacing the standard digibox with a Sky+, then the existing quad LNB should have enough ports and you will simply need to run a second cable to that location.
