In general, yes. There are possible exception. One that I can think of is
local LDS unit, they are slightly across the line into another council, but
were a member of the LDS Ward in my council. They wanted to be in the same
council as the rest of the churches belonging to that Ward, so both councils
agreed to transfer them to this council.

Yes, see above.

I have seen units that were sponsored by groups such as "Group of Concerned
Parents", "XYZ Service Club", and that sort of thing where their main purpose
was to sponsor the Scouting unit. In most states it is pretty easy to
incorporate a non profit service type group and I think that the state
charter is only something like fifty dollars.
