Yes, any MS user is capable of it.
Only full blooded Uchiha's can do it.
No, only certain MS users can.
Madara himself also says that ones with special eyes or something to that effect, which also proves that only a select few can. e.g. im inclined to believe that Shishui could because of his genjutsu.
Granted we haven't seen it. It was never outright stated that one needed to have the Mangekyo active to gain control over ther fox
Also how exactly does the phrase "those with blessed eyes" refer to a select few? if anything it refers to the entirety of the Uchiha clan.

Se what I've done? This reasoning is invalid. And when would any other uchiha would have tried to take control of the Kyuubi considering it was sealed with a very special fuuinjutsu and special charkra to begion with? No many Uchiha have even been seein trying to take control of a Kyuubi jinchuuriki. But it is clearly said in both manga and Databook that bijuu control is an Uchiha doujutsu ability.

There are plenty of other reasons as to why Itachi could have believed Madara to be Tobi, He had S/T, knew too much about Konoha + Uchiha and had the power to control the kyuubi.
Also I hope when you say sage arts, you mean toad sage arts.
2) When I wrote "the fact that we never saw any human other Jiraiya and Naruto use Gama Senjutsu proves that no other human in the past has ever managed to use/master this art" I was refering to ninja we actually saw in the manga. Fukasaku said that the frog statues around the special oil fountain were the ninjas who tried to use Toad (Gama) Sage Mode but failed. Others went trhough that training in the past and many failed but we do not have the number of those who, before Jiraiya, succeeded in the task. That's what i was saying about no other human having mastered Sennin Mode, that in fact others in the Naruto universe chronology (no what's shown in the manga) could have had mastered Gama Senjutsu in the past that Fukasaku doesn't need to talk about (Naruto wouldn't know crack about such individuals anyway, while he knows Jiraiya).
Same goes, in a certain way, with the ability to control bijuu with Mangekyou Sharingan: the fact that no one else tried to control the bijuu other thab Madara/Tobi doesn't mean, considering what is implied/said in the manga, Uchiha Secret Tablet and databook, that controlling bijuu isn't a Mangekyou ability but something exclusive to Madara and Tobi.
2) Fukusaku stated that only Naruto and Jiraiya have been able to master/Succeed in Sage arts training.
Kabuto knows full well of the Mangekyous capabilities and the Uchiha clan, he summoned Itachi but never thought of using him to control the Kyuubi. It would make sense if a select few, say 3 or 4 people in the clan had the ability to control the kyuubi, but not the whole friggin clan.
