I would think Syflex, unless cloth must interact with liquids than it would be Lagoa...

Not much production experience in neither though =/

1. ICE syflex. You will find basic information and an example ICE-Tree in SI Doc.

2. you can pin/nail syflex cloth to NULL's or let the cloth collide with mesh of a char for example. So you could constraint a NULL to the bone and I guess you get the result you need.

3. add syflex to a mesh and use this as a collide force for another mesh with syflex - so yes, it should work with multi layers.
