Yes, his GPG key would have to be added to the debian-ports keyring.

Yes. In Debian the packages should be built by the autobuilders and not
by humans, except for some cases like initial upload or porter upload.
This is something decided by the ftpmaster and the release managers.

For debian-ports each team of porters should decide that. I am fine with
whatever solution, just don't want to deal with requests from individuals
I don't know if I should trust or not (in this case, Domenico
is Debian developer, so it's a bit different). I would like such requests
to come from a single person or a small team of persons.
