No, you cannot. Chrome has not been ported to Windows Phone in fact it hasn't been ported to iOS either. Google Chrome on iOS is not nothing but Safari with a different theme and some extra features (Chrome history/tab sync). Google Chrome so far has been really ported to only one mobile platform, Android. Note that, porting Chrome to both iOS and ...

Well, there is no such a restriction with browsers on Windows Phone. UC Browser is quite nice choice for example. But since there is no Chrome on Windows Store, the answer is no. Unless you want to search for some custom app which is available somewhere in the web, but you're going to need developer unlocked phone for that.

There's no official Stack Exchange app for Windows Phone that I'm aware of. However, fellow WPSE user RareNCool was earlier this year developing an unofficial app. Last I checked, it was in closed beta. See this meta post for more info and instructions on how to get into the beta.

Unfortunately you cannot currently do this. The settings page you mentioned is so that apps can handle links related to their function (e.g. Readit might handle reddit.com or myTube might handle youtube.com). This does raise the question of whether or not an app could register itself to simply receive, for example, http://*, but unfortunately I don't have an ...

If you go to Settings => Easy of Access => Font Size and increase the font size there, built-in Internet Explorer will respect this and increase font size of web pages. It works this way on Windows Phone 8.1 for my Lumia 920.

As this is still one of the most requested features on Windows Phone UserVoice I assume it is not yet possible or at least no one has tried to create browsers with rendering engines different from Trident. This might be due to the limited API access for native code. So Opera Mini and all the others are propably wrapping around an IE webview, yes.
